Three young women in barracks at Manzanar. One sits at a desk, writing in a notebook. The other two look on, one with her hands on the back of the woman at the desk, the other bends at the waist to wash her hands in a white bowl. Caption on back of photograph reads, "Japanese Girls Make Selves at Home: These Japanese girls, left to right, Shizuko Yarmada, Lillian Ito and Mary Wada, lost no time making themselves comfortable in their new quarters after their arrival Mar. 23, 1942, at the alien reception center at Manzanar, Calif., with other emigres."
