Page from Juichi Kamikawa's scrapbook. Contains: 3 black and white snapshots, six sketches and a clipping relating to the night club in Jerome that was managed by Kamikawa. The club was called "Vargettes," a name inspired by the drawings of pin-up girls by Varga in Esquire Magazine. Kamikawa states that the drawings were made by a Japanese American girl in the camp who used to work for the Walt Disney Studios.
