Palliativity 121: The Chrysanthemum Throne

Posted on March 10, 2011

Yamamoto Farm — Rosemead, California, 1929

Chrysanthemums are the flower of the imperial seal. My family had fields of them, not that the government needed any evidence to imprison my family…

Pictured above is the homestead I'll never know— captured in a panorama before the war. I am always comforted to see my family's smiles and grand fortune in the dustbowl of American life. Though the Depression was a time most Americans would rather forget, my family was living their American Dream.
