Original WRA caption: "It's good to have a private bath of your own again," says Mrs. George Isoda as [she] gives her 2-1/2-year-old son Robin his daily bath. "After the community showers at the relocation centers, there's nothing quite so good as to be able to come home to your own warm tub and all the facilities offered by a modern bathroom in your own home." Mr. and Mrs. Isoda are Los Angeles Nisei who came to Milwaukee last year from the Granada Relocation Center. Mr. Isoda is a[n] auto mechanic in Milwaukee. They rent their own home, a large 6-room, 2-story house in which they live with another Nisei family, Mr. and Mrs. Masumi Kaneko. Beginning in summer 1942, the War Relocation Authority (WRA) began to release incarcerees and encouraged them to resettle in areas of the United States other than the West Coast.
