Panoramic Photograph of a California Chicken Farm
[San Francisco]: Hanasono Studio, (n. d.), circa 1935. 8 x 34 inches. B&w photograph, with photographer's name in the plate in the lower right corner. Rolled, with a slight crease to the left edge and a small corner crease to the right edge; light soiling to verso. About Very Good.
A large panoramic photograph of an unnamed chicken farm, probably in Petaluma or Penngrove, California, given Hanasono Studio's San Francisco location. Although there is nothing in the photo itself to indicate the farm was owned by Japanese Americans, it is possible, as Hanasono Studio was owned and operated by Japanese Americans George and Mabel Hanasono. George was heavily involved in the Bay Area Japanese American community, and was one of the partners in the restaurant Nisei Grill, on Post Street in San Francisco.
We find no records of this photograph in OCLC, and locate only a handful of any photographs by Hanasono Studio in online records, all related to the Japanese American community.
