Found this slide amongst many other slide photographs taken by my Grandfather Clyde Sanborn. Clyde was a photographer for the army and did photograph nuclear testing. [570×878]
Maneuvers under fissile nuclear fallout… Mid 20th century was wild!
Remember the Bundy standoff? Nuclear testing was less than a hundred miles north of Las Vegas and Cliven Bundy’s hometown of Bunkerville Nevada is just about due east of Las Vegas off of I-15. Nuclear fallout was a formative experience in his childhood. Not defending him but when I learned that I was like wow of course he doesn’t like the US federal government.
