Manzanar

This guard post is still there. Note it has some oriental styling. This post was manned by 'internal security' personnel. Not shown in photo is the 'outer security' manned by Military Police. The auditorium has been restored and is now a visitor center. Stop in and watch the video and you'll realize what a rotten deal this was for these people.

Still there

Amazingly, it looks exactly like this today, except the long building behind the guard shack is gone. Last time I was there (a few years ago) there was a restoration effort underway but you could still drive past the old guard shack and around the property.
