#MyBaachan 37. Inside the House

Baachan_035.jpg

In the Commission house where my Baachan lived for three years, they did not have running water. They had to fetch it in buckets and use a wooden sink. They used kerosene lamps for lighting. This drawing is based on a photograph I took of the inside of a preserved house at the Nikkei Internment Memorial Centre, a national historic site in New Denver, BC, which I visited with my parents on a Nikkei bus tour from Toronto some years ago.
