Original caption: Centerville, California. Members of farming families are pictured as they left for Centerville, one mile away, to board evacuation bus. These women worked at so-called "stoop labor", chiefly cultivating tomatoes. Farmers and other evacuees of Japanese ancestry will be given opportunities to follow their callings at War Relocation Authority centers where they will spend the duration.
