Views of the A-Bomb Dome

(viewed 932 times)

Formerly the Prefectural Commercial Exhibition Hall (see further down for a computer image of what it looked like before the bomb dropped). This has been preserved as it was after the bomb fell 150 metres away and about 100 metres up. Its structure held to an extent because of its robust design and the fact that the bomb fell almost on top of it - thus almost all impact was from above and it was not swept away. Virtually everything else within a 2 km radius crumbled into rubble and dust. A World Heritage Monument, the building has been left as a lasting reminder of those who died and of the devastating effect of nuclear weapons.
