Rare Hiroshima Photo Found

The existence of a photo of a mushroom cloud split in two, taken from just outside Hiroshima on August 6, 1945,  has been long known but the actual print has only now been found.  (UPDATE:  Much longer report at The Atlantic now.)  Only one photographer on the ground took photos that day.  I interviewed him years ago in Hiroshima and you can read about it here.   Amazing man and amazing story.
