Hiroshima road sign found at valuation day (UK)





THE twisted and melted remains of a road sign from the Japanese city of Hiroshima, picked up by a sailor in the aftermath of the dropping of the atom bomb, has been uncovered at an auctioneers' day.

The road sign was seen during a valuation tour in Fairford by antiques experts Moore Allen & Innocent.

The event, which ran for an hour longer than scheduled, raised £380 for Fairford and Lechlade Carers Support Group.
