T.A. WAR COLLECTION: “Japanese Watch Bulletins as the War Starts” (1941)

“Japanese in Little Tokyo are shown watching bulletins as the war started. Here is a bulletin posted on a wall of one of the buildings. “Our people are stunned by this,” said Carl Ikamure (the man nearest the bulletin). “We can’t believe the Japanese government would order such a bombing at this time.” Similar statements were made by others in the crowd. Selling of liquor in district was banned.” December 8, 1941
