Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains 31 negatives and prints about George Bungaro Tani's life. It includes family pictures and photographs of Los Angeles and the Granada incarceration camp.
George Bungaro Tani was born in Japan in 1872. Before 1905, Tani opened a bamboo furniture store that sold wholesale and retail bamboo furniture, mattings, and Japanese art on Spring Street in Los Angeles, California. During World War II, Tani, and most likely his son, Jiro, moved to the Granada incarceration camp. Jiro was drafted to fight the war in 1945. After the incarceration camps closed, Tani and his son moved to Denver, Colorado. In 1953, Tani died in Los Angeles, California.
