Women Posing Beside the Peace Bridge

Hiroshima -- As a mountain range rises angularly in the background, two Japanese misses, on in modern dress the other clad in traditional Japanese kimono, pose beside the Peace Bridge in Hiroshima during a day of remembrance, the ninth anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima with atomic bombs. Shielding their heads from the sun with parasols, Misses Sakae Okubi (left), 28, and Mariko Matsumoto, 22, both affected by the atomic bombing of August 6th, 1945, are shown in Peace Memorial Park. Miss Okubi suffered minor burns of the arms and several cuts on her back, while Miss Matsumoto lost her father, grandmother and an uncle, just days before the surrender of Japan of August 14th, 1945. After the formal surrender of Japan, work was begun on the Memorial Park by Japanese-American sculptor, Isamu Noguchi. The formal surrender came on September 2nd, 1945. (1954)
