Father and Daughter Look at Land Prior to Evacuation – March 1942

Sonoji Sakai and his daughter Kay look over their farmland, adjacent to their newly built home, just before evacuation. In the 1950s, Mr. and Mrs. Sakai sold part of their land, now where Ordway school stands, to the Bainbridge Island School District at the same price they had paid for it more than a decade earlier.
