Final Check on the Bomb
Placing human-like personas on objects – the same way some military personnel nicknamed this deadly atomic bomb as “Little Boy” — is as chilling as this soldier making final checks on this nuclear bomb before it was dropped on the hapless city of Hiroshima back in 1945.

This picture was produced in 1944 by makeup artist Eddie Senz to make sure that no matter how the dictator chose to disguise himself, he could still be recognized.
