Aioi bridge , hiroshima
Aioi Bridge was a nationally known T-shaped bridge with girders extending from its central section to Jisenji-no-hana (now, the north end of Peace Memorial Park). The bridge was the target of the atomic bomb. The bomb missed slightly, exploding 300 meters from the bridge in the air over Shima Hospital.
It was reconstructed after the war and replaced in 1983 by a newer, again T- shaped bridge
