The black-and-white picture is believed to have been taken about half-an-hour after the bombing on August 6, 1945, around 10 kilometres (six miles) east of the hypocentre
. "The existence of this shot was always known in history books, but this is the first time that the actual print has been discovered," said a curator at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum."A shot showing the mushroom cloud split into two like this is very rare."

Among them was Hiroshi Sawachika, who was 28 when the bomb was dropped demolishing 60,000 buildings within a three-mile radius.The army doctor - who was almost three miles from the hypocentre
, the point directly beneath the detonation, which occurred at 1,900ft - recalled the mushroom cloud which hung over the city and the approach of a 'strange noise' resembling a large flock of mosquitoes.
