Nagasaki atomic bomb damage

Nagasaki atomic bomb damage, from the Marine’s scrapbook.

“A room gutted by the blast”

“Hurricane winds drove these splinters into a board”

“An arch frames part of the medical school”

“Rails, chimneys & rubble”

“Girders that once housed a factory”

From “Pictorial Arrowhead Occupation of Japan by Second Marine Division”, which can be described as a “yearbook” commemorating the American occupation of Nagasaki following World War II. See: Bombing Nagasaki: the scrapbook
