Drawing from the middle of the race track at Tanforan Assembly Center
Caption written by Kenneth Iyeki: "Here is another scene, skeched from the middle of the track. The striped pole in the foreground represented a furlough. 220 yards. The barrack in the scene is number 115. There were five rooms to a barrack. Five families. Separating each room were plywood walls, built half-way to the ceiling. One had to talk in a whispter to prevent the neighbors from listening in. After awhile, no one cared any longer. You knew everything about your neighbor and he knew all there was to know about you."
