Saburo Miyake's textile factory. Caption by Homer Yasui: "A textile or weaving factory, with the relatives and workers inside the shop. I've always understood that Saburo's and [Shidzuyo Yasui]'s father, Ichiro, ran a fishnet making factory. On the machine just before it reaches the completed roll of fabric, the material does look like netting."

c. 1940
