CITYAtglen, PA

This collection of photographs accompanied by a historical narrative documents the massive facilities at Oak Ridge, Tennessee and Hanford, Washington that produced fissionable materials for nuclear weapons. The high-resolution pictures chronicle the components of those disappearing relics of the nuclear age. The narrative places the photography in the context of the production of the enriched uranium and plutonium used in the weapons. A section includes the Trinity test, use of the bombs on Japan, and the legacy of the Manhattan Project.
