Japanese American couple (inside truck) and their dog, King.
Japanese Americans were not allowed to take family pets with
them to camp and, if they were lucky, left the animals with
friends or neighbors. King was very devoted to his owners, as
this photo indicates. Apparently, the husky bared his fangs at
soldiers who tried to remove him from the truck, and his
owners had to coax the reluctant dog back into the house.
Although the couple was able to find a neighbor who was
willing to care for King, he refused to eat and starved to death.

                                             The Higo Ten-
                                            Cent Store,
                                            located on
                                            Jackson Street.


The Japanese American owners of this store were able to
reopen after the war because they were able to pay property
taxes while interned. Higo Variety Store is one of the last
prewar Japanese American businesses in Seattle's
International District.

The Puyallup Assembly Center, shown here under
construction, was on the site of the annual Western
Washington State Fair. The center was constructed in only
seventeen days. Barracks were constructed in converted
livestock stalls near the parking lots and under the grandstand.
Japanese Americans remained at the fairgrounds from April 28
to September 23, 1942, before moving to permanent
incarceration camps.
