The Showa Industrial Exposition hosted by Hiroshima City ran for 55 days from March 20 to May 13, 1929, at three venues in the city. It drew roughly 1.74 million visitors. This footage was shot from the main entrance of Venue 1, established on the Western Drill Ground, located to the north of today’s Kamiya-cho intersection. The first scene shows Kamiya-cho intersection and trams in the background. Subsequent scenes record an elephant show and crowds of spectators. The official records of the expo include no mention of elephants being shown, so it is not clear whether it was part of the expo proper. The very short footage is repeated in slow motion to make details easier to see.
