Color and black-and-white films, ca. 1930s-1960s, of activities of the Yamada family in Los Angeles, California.

This brief black-and-white segment, from the late 1930s, shows a Yamada family wedding banquet at Kawafuku Restaurant in Los Angeles (00:25); an unidentified man introduces the entertainers; two young girls with the letters S R on their costumes tap dance for the guests while a man accompanies them on a drum; two men laugh as one raises a cup of sake.

Credits: Yamada Family Collection, Gift of Tsuneko Yamada, Japanese American National Museum (2005.104.1). Preserved and made accessible in part by a grant from the National Film Preservation Foundation.
