The Bain collection, 1920s-1940s, focuses on the daily and recreational activities of the Nishimura and Yorita families, originally from Seattle, Washington. This collection contains several photographs of farming, fishing, and swimming. The majority of the collection focuses on the incarceration of the two families at Minidoka, Idaho, and Tule Lake, California. Many photographs document their jewelry-making activities at Tule Lake. Densho interviewed collection donor Peggie Bain in 2004.
