Hiroshima blast seen through Japanese eyes

(London Daily Mail) A newly discovered photograph shows the infamous Hiroshima atomic bomb mushroom cloud still floating above Japan half an hour later.

The picture was taken soon after the bomb was dropped on Japan on August 6, 1945, and shows the cloud parting in to two separate sections.

The bombing of Hiroshima claimed the lives of around 140,000 people – while three days later another atomic bomb was dropped on the city of Nagasaki leading to the deaths of another 70,000.
