"Coronado on the Frontline: 1942-45" opens March 9th at the Museum of History & Art. Displays vividly portray what was happening on North Island, in homes, schools and churches and at the Hotel del Coronado after the bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941.
Photographs, documents, letters and postcards from the Museum’s archive, as well as artifacts representing Coronado during this period will be on view. A soundtrack from the era and a 1940s-style living room vignette provide an appropriate backdrop. One poignant component focuses on the Japanese American neighbors, friends and workers in Coronado who were isolated and sent to internment camps.
The exhibit will remain on display through October. Admission is by donation.
Location: Coronado Museum of History & Art, 1100 Orange Ave. Coronado, CA 92118 (619) 435-7242, Google Maps
