ID: These 2 rapatronic view were taken in 1953 during Upshot-Knothole (7 tower shots: Annie, Nancy, Ruth, Ray, Badger, Simon, Harry).
- But it is probably not either of the Ruth/Ray fizzles.
- Not Nancy shot (Nancy used a different style of 300 ft tower)
- Finalists: Annie, Badger, Simon, Harry
- But any know rapatronics view were released about Badger, Simon, Harry shot
- On a few web source, these picture was named "Annie shot"
- At the same time, Annie was a "open shot", with numerous journalist, and after this famous shot, some view were released
