57 views5/13/1943-Port Newark, NJ: Born in conquered Canton, but now good Americans all, these five Chinese are helping build destroyer escorts at the Federal Shipbuilding Yards in Port Newark.

Left to right are Jing Lee, former waiter of Brooklyn; Wesley Fong Lau, New York Food dealer; Gar Gee Lee, Astoria waiter; Wong Jung Shew, laundryman of Scarsdale, New York, and young Wah Yueb, ex-cook of Newark.
