Photographer Julien Bryan: "Not far from the center of town a bomb had hit an apartment house and exposed the first, second, and third floors. A boy was walking dazedly back and forth carrying the one possession he had found -- a canary in its cage. He walked up and down over a pile of stones and bricks. Under the pile there were nine or ten bodies, so the neighbors told us, not yet recovered."
