Through the Railing

A unique perspective... Looking through the bridge's railing at the a-bomb building. The A-Bomb Dome is a symbol of peace, designed by a Czech architect in 1915. Since the Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall was located about 524 feet away from the hypocenter the building was blown up. However, the building wasn't completely destroyed. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.
