Full title:In front of their home on a tree-lined street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Mr. and Mrs. Eishichiro George Koiwai, Issei formerly of the Minidoka Relocation Center and Seattle, Wash., greet Dr. George Wada, formerly of Colorado River and Los Angeles, Calif. Although Mr. and Mrs. Koiwai only joined their two sons in Philadelphia in April 1944, their home is already a center of Nisei and Issei social life. They occupy the first and third floors of a large frame house, and freely use the porches and gardens with the owner, who lives on the second floor. Mr. Koiwai, who formerly had his own cleaning business in Seattle, is now employed by a large Philadelphia cleaning establishment. Mrs. Koiwai is working part-time at a nearby food packing concern. Not shown are the Koiwai children: Pfc. Eichi Karl, a student at Hahnemann Medical College who recently married the former Chiyo Tamaki, a trained nurse, of St. Louis and Minidoka; and Toshiyuki Henry, who attends Temple University and works part-time at the Philadelphia headquarters of the American Friends Service Committee. Dr. Wada was on the staff of the Poston Hospital and is a resident physician at Stetson Hospital in Philadelphia.<lb /> Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru<lb /> Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
