Destruction of a test house (4 of 4) 
n.d. 
  
Collection of Brad Feuerhelm 
 
LL/34009 
  
Series of 4 photos of the atomic energy commission's automatic camera, shielded in lead, recorded these stages of destruction of a test house, 3,500 feet from the explosion, during a test at the AEC's Atomic Proving Grounds in Nevada. The blast set fire to the house, lifted the roof and reduced the structure to matchsticks - all within 2 1/3 seconds.
