Mike, Roy, and Harry Murakami in front of the Wayside Nursery in Gardena, California, 1955. It was not unusual for multiple members of a family to be involved in the gardening profession. Three of the Murakami brothers worked as full-time gardeners. Others worked as part-time gardeners or assisted their brothers with their routes. This was a gift to the Japanese American National Museum, from Harry Murakami. (2000.336.2)
