NUCLEAR VEGAS POSTCARDS

 

Passend zu Clay Lipskys Photoshops von vorletzter Woche hat Retronaut eine kleine Sammlung alter Las Vegas Postkarten mit Atompilzen. Das wiederum sind keine Photoshops, die fanden das in der Tat gut und haben sogar Cocktailparties dazu abgehalten:

Between 1945 and 1962, about 100 above-ground tests were carried out. The light pulse, shock wave and mushroom cloud could all be seen from Las Vegas. Many times, residents threw cocktail parties and gathered outside while a test was being carried out. The early growth of Las Vegas was due almost entirely to the boost in prosperity it got from the huge numbers of scientists, test ground staff and soldiers that worked on the atomic tests. (BBC)
