From The Japan Times:
The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum released online Wednesday [July 6th] digitally processed 16 mm film footage that shows the central area of Hiroshima about 10 years before the city was devastated by the U.S. atomic bombing.
The original film is the only footage owned by the museum depicting the area before World War II.
The museum spent about ¥900,000 to digitize the original film, which was donated in 1963. Work to process the film included removing scratches and increasing the resolution, as the film was in a bad state with poor image quality.
