Additional Information Image was scanned from color slide. Note: Additional information can be found on Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park website: http://www.pcf.city.hiroshima.jp/virtual/VirtualMuseum_e/tour_e/ireihi/tour_38_e.html Note: Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park (Hiroshima heiwa kinen kōen) is a memorial park in the center of Hiroshima, Japan. It is dedicated to the legacy of Hiroshima as the first city in the world to suffer a nuclear attack, and to the memories of the bomb's direct and indirect victims ... The location of Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park was once the city's busiest downtown commercial and residential district. The park was built on open field that was created by the explosion. Today there are a number of memorials and monuments, museums, and lecture halls ... The annual 6 August Peace Memorial Ceremony ... is also held in the park ... The purpose of the Peace Memorial Park is to not only memorialize the victims, but also to establish the memory of nuclear horrors and advocate world peace.--Wikipedia. Note: The building [Hiroshima Peace Memorial] was designed by the Czech architect Jan Letzel. It was completed in April 1915 and was named the Hiroshima Prefectural Commercial Exhibition Hall ... In 1921 the name was changed to the Hiroshima Prefectural Products Exhibition Hall, and again in 1933, to the Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall ... The building now known as the Genbaku (A-Bomb) Dome was the only structure left standing near the bomb's hypocentre.--Wikipedia.
