Photograph of Manzanar farm produce on display in Lone Pine. Local residents took notice of Manzanar's large farm fields and gardens. Displays of farm produce, such as this one at Chalfant Press in Lone Pine, helped dispel local hostility toward the camp. Farm output for 1943 was 1,666 tons of vegetables, fruit and grain, with nearly all of it used in the mess halls.
