These eerie LIFE magazine photos show the aftermath of an atomic bomb test on a replica town in the Nevada desert in 1955. The replica town was populated by department store mannequins, many of which were badly burned or dismembered. The photos were taken by Loomis Dean for a 1955 LIFE article, though many of the more graphic images were withheld—until now.
