This photo was in Mr Hachiya's memorabilia. I have no idea of when it was taken, but I would guess at about the time of Grandpa and Pop's first entry into the U.S. Pop must have been around 17 or so.   They would have had to report to relatives in Japan that they had made the transition.  -- Claude Morita
