Urakami Cathedral pillar
left standing at epicenter of 1945 atomic bomb
Nagasaki, Japan
April 1980
According to Wikipedia, this area looks much different today.


  1. It's interesting to see how much this spot has been changed.

  2. Nancy the Center does look much different in your link. Fascinating. Horrid time in our history though.....

  3. Wow! There is a great difference in the 2 photos for sure! Your photo reminds me of the tragedy of many lives lost. I think perhaps it is the lighting as well as the remains of the pillar. Thanks for posting!

  4. Wow. It looks VERY different now. Interesting... and what a sobering reminder of the damages of war. What did the cathedral look like before the bomb?

  5. Amazing! I've forgotten who the statues on top represent.

  6. Wow, yes it certainly has changed! I actually like the earlier one better.
