Minus Manhattan

Check out this creepy photoset by Loomis Dean originally for Life Magazine.

The photos were shot in the mid-1950s and show the aftermath of a nuclear weapon’s effect on a fake town. During the Cold War the U.S. government built this fake town expressively for the purpose of testing post-atomic weapon results. Many of these photos were never originally published in Life.

    I’d always wanted to see the aftermath of the nuclear testing town. The before was always kind of creepy to me.
