A long lost image from the Hiroshima atomic bombing has been discovered at a Japanese elementary school.
The black-and-white photograph shows the mushroom cloud over Hiroshima split into two distinctly separated parts, one on top of the other.
The rare image was found at the Honkawa Elementary School in Hiroshima city, in a collection of about 1,000 articles on the WWII atomic bombing. The material was donated by a late survivor, Yosaburo Yamasaki, in or after 1953.
According to the Japanese daily Asahi Shimbun, a memo on the back of the photo says it was shot near the town of Kaitaichi, some six miles east of ground zero, two minutes after the bomb was dropped on August 6, 1945.
The book reported that the photographer is “unknown” and that the image was shot “20-30 minutes” after the bombing.

As we noted a few days ago, the entire right wing media and blogosphere — all of them — fell for yet another fake outrage: the false claim that President Obama had offered to apologize to Japan for the bombing of Hiroshima in WWII.
Fox News, of course, quickly spread the bogus anti-Obama story far and wide before anyone could notice that it was a complete fraud, thereby ensuring that it would become a right wing article of faith, impervious to logic or facts.
When Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher contacted them about their deceptive coverage, Fox News decided to have dim bulb Steve Doocy “clarify” the issue.Youtube Video
I hope no one’s holding their breath waiting for the rest of the right wing universe to own up to their part in circulating a completely false story.
