Caption by Homer Yasui: "A Nikkei farm family scene, taken at one of the early Yasui farms in Summit, which is slightly north and a little west of Odell, Oregon. The farm 'family' was mostly the young Masuo and Shidzuyo Yasuis Sitting back left is, I believe, Yoshizaemon Mori...I think that standing in the center is Ikutaro Takagi...Standing directly in front of Ikutaro is, I think, Harry Takagi, Ikutaro's son. Ryusuke Watanabe is the man at the far right, with his arms akimbo...[Shidzuyo] is holding a baby on her lap, and this baby is Michi...Standing front right are four other Yasui children. Ches is standing far right, with his right arm over Kay's shoulder. Next to Kay is Min[oru], who also has his right arm companionably draped over his little sister's shoulder. Yuki appears to be sucking her fingers."

c. 1921
