Elderly Issei playing shogi

Original caption: "Heart Mountain Relocation Center, Heart Mountain, Wyoming. An early immigrant from Japan, now residing at Heart Mountain, after evacuation from west coast areas, reaches for a pawn in a game of Shogi, similar in characters and playing to Chess. Although previously mumbling in Japanese, startled by the camera flash, the old gent let loose a typical American [expletive]."
