Hiroshima Bomb Anniversary pt. 2

these are exhibits from the Peace Museum at Hiroshima Peace Park.

Hiroshima after the bomb - not too may structures left, but remember the bulk of the city was made of wood and the fires raged for days.  The red ball is the bomb exploding.  US officials purposely chose the bomb to explode in air in order to maximize the radius of destruction.  If it had exploded on the ground it would've been less damaging

Gee, I wonder why they dont sell these shirts at museums in the USA?

tricycle survives blast (sort of), but no word of it's owner.

blast victims with their skin melting off.

watch stopped at the time of the blast.
