The early part of the footage records Hacchobori, one of Hiroshima City’s foremost commercial districts. Trams, automobiles, and horse-drawn carriages are shown travelling past the Fukuya Department Store building, which survived the atomic bombing and looks outwardly unchanged today. The film is thought to date from around 1940, because of billboards associated with events to commemorate the 2,600th anniversary of the commencement of Emperor Jimmu’s reign. The second half of the footage, showing Fukuya and its neighborhood, was shot from Kyoguchimon-dori, where the Hakushima tram line used to be. Hakushima Line was moved east to Hakushima-dori after the war.
