Yokohama 3

From the Diary of Hazel Bucklin 1923 - 1924

Thru field glasses we can see Yokohama quite clearly. In the business section are the shells of buildings, mostly roofless, and with the interiors burned out. There are pieces of walls standing, like the ruins of Rome and Athens. Farther back, the hillsides are desolate, swept clear by the fire. Nearest to the ship is what was the foreign section with fine homes on a high bluff; none are standing now. Just piles of white wreckage.
