Image of 1985.115.009 - Map of Redwood City areas occupied by the Japanese.  This map is rectangular in shape and is made of white paper. This map shows a gridlock of streets in Redwood City, written in brown ink with small black arrows and dots below sets of numbers identifying lands occupied by the Japanese, which is also connected to a drawing of the Redwood Creek with more dots and lines with numbers identifying areas where Japanese people occupied. On some parts of the gridlock streets on the map, there are small black lines spaced out showing where a majority of areas occupied by the Japanese. Along the top and bottom of the map, spaced out by brown lines, there are a set of numbers printed in brown that reads "1  /  2  /  3  /  4  / 5  /  6  /  7  /  8  /  9". Along both of the sides of the map, spaced by brown lines, there are a set of letters printed in bold and brown that reads "A  /  B  /  C  /  D  /  E  /  F".

In the middle of the drawing of the intersection of the two creeks and Harbor Boulevard, printed in black and bold, the text reads "PORT REDWOOD CITY  /  &  /  VICINITY".Towards the right, there is a drawing of a circle with a white arrow through it.
