On a brick wall beside an air raid shelter poster, exclusion orders were posted at First and Front Streets in San Francisco, California, directing the removal of persons of Japanese ancestry from the first part of San Francisco to
be affected by the evacuation concentration camps. The order was issued April 1, 1942, by Lieutenant General J.L. DeWitt, and directed evacuation forced removal from this section by noon on April 7, 1942. (NARA)
