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.
