Hiroshima - Hiroshima photograph
- Hiroshima - Hiroshima photograph
Photobook. One volume. First and only edition.
- Made in: Hiroshima-ken
An exceedingly rare item published in Hiroshima at a time when all public discussion of the Atomic bombing was banned by US Headquarters. The booklet includes photographs by Sasaki Yuichiro, Yamamoto Yoshie, and Matsushige Yoshito. It is unclear whether the publishers had obtained special permission to print this item or whether it consciously went against the ban. There is a short introduction by the Mayor of Hiroshima, Hamai Shingo which suggests some kind of official support. No copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
