Historical 360° Photos of Hiroshima

On August 5, we reported, that Google has now launched Hiroshima Peace Memorial on Google Maps Place Page, just a day before the 66th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima.

Today, 360Cities has published a series of historical 360° photos of Hiroshima, taken six months after the Boeing B-29 Superfortress Enola Gay dropped an atomic bomb codenamed “Little Boy” on the Japanese city (on August 6, 1945).

The images were shot by three different American photographers and one Japanese photographer.

According to Wikipedia, “Little Boy” directly killed an estimated 80,000 people, and by the end of the year, injury and radiation brought total casualties to 90,000-166,000.

Approximately 69 percent of the city’s buildings were completely destroyed, and about 7 percent severely damaged.
