It says "out Temple from courthouse", so the view is to the NW
from the SE part of Broadway and Temple. The street on the right is where the Santa Ana Freeway is now, and another 3000' or so up that will be the 4 level interchange.

I pulled this one because of the historical significance of the date and the people involved.

The caption read: "The San Lorenzo Nursery Company building in Los Angeles. The company is Japanese-owned."

The date: 11-23-41

I'll spare everyone a long rant about this and just mention that I married a sansei Japanese American. You can imagine my feelings toward the scum who perpetrated that horror show on my wife's family.

Re: Old pics of the area

My Mom and Dad were both attending Inglewood High when the war broke out. Inglewood had a lot of JAs, and by 1942 there were a lot of empty seats in those classrooms.

By the way, they didn't send Freddie Blassie to a relocation camp. His parents emigrated from Germany.

"After the United States entered World War II, Blassie enlisted in the Navy and served in the Pacific Theater for 42 months. The war was a trying time for his family back home because of his grandparents' German heritage. They were often accused of being unpatriotic. In addition, he married a Jewish girl named Nettie Needles in California while on shore leave. He achieved the rank of Petty Officer Second Class before he was discharged."

"In 1962, Blassie had a feud with Japanese wrestling icon Rikidozan that established his reputation in Japan. After Blassie lost the WWA World Heavyweight Championship to Rikidozan in Los Angeles, the two had a rematch on live Japanese television. Many of the viewers were horrified by Blassie's treatment of their hero. One of Blassie's gimmicks was to file his teeth, and draw blood from his opponents by biting their foreheads. The sight of the Japanese legend covered in his own blood gave several viewers heart attacks, and some reportedly even died."

Sansei are third generation. Their grandparents would have emigrated from J land (issei) and their parents would be native born (nisei).

Wow, it's amazing how recognizable that spot is, even without the freeway.

We have a home movie of driving over that pass on the San Diego dating from the late 60's early 70s.

Here's a contemporary overhead shot of the exact block depicted in the 1949 shot with the ice cream man in it.

EDIT: As you can see, the freeway took out Ferguson Alley. According to my 1945 Renie Pocket Atlas of Los Angeles, it also took out nearby Sanchez St, Fort Moore and Negro Alley.
