Original WRA caption: Mrs. George Isoda and Mrs. Masumi Kaneko patronize this well-stocked shopping center. This shopping center in the Shorewood district in Milwaukee is a short walk from the home of the Isodas and the Kanekos. Not only is this an excellent shopping center, but it is a meeting place for the young wives of the neighborhood who stop for friendly chats with their friends whom they meet bent on their own shopping tours. 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.
