Pan The Horizons of The Hiroshima Aftermath

Photographed by Harbert F. Austin Jr. from the roof of the Kodo elementary School October, 1945. Location: Nekoya-cho. Distance from hypocenter: approx. 760m. The start of restoration work by the citizens in the aftermath of the bomb can be observed as people cross bridges, ride bicycles, and walk about.

66 long years ago, Japanese cities Hiroshima and Nagasaki were leveled by the US with atomic bombs. 200,000 people were killed and both the cities were in ruins.

360cities.net has been able to find 5 different 360-degree panoramas of the aftermath in Hiroshima by Shigeo Hayashi, H. J. Peterson and another anonymous photographer, each showing a different angle. Click the link below to watch them.
