Japanese-American residents were forced to evacuate this Italianate row house at 1615 Post Street, and others in San Francisco's Japantown Neighborhood in 1942 following the imposition of United States Executive Order 9066, which decreed the internment of persons with "Foreign Enemy Ancestry" from areas now deemed militarily significant. This militarily significant zone took in all of the Pacific Coast States. A twin residence at 1613 Post Street also lost its Japanese-American inhabitant at this time. Noted photographer Dorothea Lange (1895-1965) composed the photo.
