This collection includes one photograph album compiled by Shigeo "Johnny" Takahashi, Yoneguma Takahashi's younger brother. It contains family portraits, military photographs from Japan, Korea, and China, and photographs of Yoneguma's fruit stand in San Pedro, California.

Youneguma Takahashi was born to Shigeta and Ema Takahashi on November 24, 1909. He lived in California till his family moved back to Japan. Takahashi returned to the United States and owned a fruit and vegetable stand in San Pedro from 1938-1939. His younger brother, Shiego Takahashi (1917-2003), was a clerk at the stand. During World War II, Yoneguma's wife and children and Shiego were forcibly removed to the Poston incarceration camp in 1942. After the war, Yoneguma's family moved to Garden Grove, California, while Shiego moved to Chicago, Illinois. Shiego eventually moved back to Garden Grove.
