"Snowy Sierra Tower Over Evacuation Center -- The snow-capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada towered in the western background over Manzanar in the Owens Valley where workmen rushed preparations March 19 to receive the first of 10,000 evacuated Japanese from Southern California cities to be housed in a huge reception center. Carpenters here put together frames for barracks in the first of 25 city blocks to be erected."--caption on photograph
