Hello Rich The Atomic Dome!!!! is this in memory of the bombing of Hiroshima?

Greetings Puna, You are correct, this is one of the few structures that survived the blast, to this degree, at ground zero. It is a permanent testament to the destructive power of a nuclear weapon. Unfortunately, most of the casualties were civilians. I don't know if you see her, but there is an image on the brick wall. She haunts me every time I see these pictures. Hopefully a nuclear weapon will never be used again in aggression. Thanks for your visit.
