Sumi Seki, wearing a knee-length coat, is standing on rubble at Jerome, Arkansas, incarceration camp. She appears to be standing on building materials, and there are more materials scattered on the ground behind her. There is some snow layering the ground. This is a photograph of a photograph, taken by Tom Shaw of the Independent Press-Telegram. The caption used in the newspaper reads, "The internees found Arkansas weather harsher than California's" and an additional note attached reads, "Sumi Seo Seki, an internee from San Pedro, at Jerome, Ark. camp in 1942 (it is still under construction)."
