"Japanese-Americans sew for Red Cross. Demonstrating their loyalty to this country, members of the Japanese-Alameda Citizens League of Alameda are working around the clock to produce garments for distribution to war victims through the Red Cross. Here Mrs. Saku Mitani, 80, operates a sewing machine while Toshiko Kado, left, and Tazuko Wakabayashi, right look on. More than 100 women members of the League have worked 2000 hours in making garments since the Pacific War began." -- caption on photograph.
