Swimmers at a Las Vegas hotel watch a mushroom cloud from an atomic test 75 miles away.


The test took place about 65 miles northwest of the city of Las Vegas and the people are watching from the Last Frontier.

The date was not 1953. The Last Frontier built the pool sometime in 1955 and changed its name to the New Frontier on April 4, 1955. The shadows indicate that it is mid morning so I think this was the Wasp Prime test which took place at 10 am on March 29 1955 as part of Operation Teapot.

Here is a rather long technical video produced by the government about Operation Teapot.
