From CAPTIVES OF EMPIRE WEBSITE: (there is a lot of history and photos of Pootung, online)
Pootung Camp received the first intake of internees in late January, 1943. Originally a men only camp, it held single men, men who had sent their families home before the war, and men married to non interned third nationals or Asians. Most of the crew of the American President line's SS President Harrison were held here initially. The buildings consisted of the condemned godowns of the British American Tobacco Company and was located not far from Pootung Point, across the Whangpoo River and Shanghai's Bund, which could be seen from the upper stories of the buildings. The compound was littered with junk and debris and included the bombed out ruins of a Chinese village destroyed in the 1937 fighting. By manual labor alone, internees cleared this area to construct playing fields and garden plots; this area was christened the "Happy Garden." After the September 1943 repatriation of Americans and Canadians, many Pootung internees were transferred to other camps to provide manual labor there, while many women were transferred to Pootung from other camps, including two of the Yangchow camps which the Japanese closed. 1,519 internees called Pootung home at one time or another.
