[Japanese Internment Poster] Instructions to Persons of Japanese Ancestry Living in the Following Area (Gresham, Oregon)
[San Francisco]: Western Defense Command and Fourth Army, 1942.
An original World War II-era broadside poster, 14" x 22", printed on recto only. Very Good. Toning, light foxing and soiling, light edge wear, light creases and former owner's inkless emboss to bottom right corner. These posters ordered all Japanese people to be evacuated from the city of Gresham, Oregon. A chilling artifact from the American government's internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II. Similar posters and orders appeared up and down the west coast. Item #140942310
