Pleasure Park Notecards Boxed Set
Pleasure Park, Manzanar War Relocation Center , photo by Ansel Adams, 1943. Kuichiro Nishi, the park's primary landscape designer, dedicated his work "To the memory of fellow Japanese Immigrants who, although ushered to this place with the breaking of friendly relations between two countries, have come to enjoy this quiet peaceful place." The park was excavated by National Park Service staff and volunteers in 2008. While the water that flowed through the pond and the plants that once graced the park are gone, the stones remain as a testament to beauty behind barbed wire. Contains 8 blank notecards (5"x7") with 9 envelopes.
