Barracks

Barracks
From the Japanese-American and POW camp of WWII, Tulelake, California. POWs were Italian & German. This building and the guard tower were moved to the Tulelake Museum to preserve them. There were actually two separate camps, one near the town of Tulelake and one at Newell, a few miles south. The Newell site, where this barracks was, became the largest Japanese-American internment camp in the USA. These barracks were simple wood framing with tar paper covers, uninsulated against the freezing winters and very hot summers of this region. Read about the camp here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tulelake_camp

You can see the tower and an end of this building by clicking on the Location, enabling Satellite view and using Street View.
