    The above photo captured three important facilities of Jitsugetsu hydro-electric power project: Power Plant No. 2 (burning, lower-left corner), Gun Cabinet Dam (top), and Erping Housing Area (right). When construction of the project was still underway, Erping was used to house the construction workers. Offices were also located in this area. After the project was finished, dormitories for power plants workers and hostels were built here. It was referred to as “Little Sun Moon Lake” after the war.
    上面的照片涵蓋了日月潭水力發電計畫的三座重要設施:左下角燃燒中的是第二發電所,銃櫃壩位於正上方,右半部則是二坪仔宿舍區。二坪仔原來是1936年施工期間的辦公室與工人宿舍,完工後就成為電廠的宿舍及招待所,戰後美國人稱之為小日月潭。

    In the next two photos, it can be seen that access roads to Erping Housing Area were also bombed. However, it is not clear if Erping was the intended target or the bombs missed Power Plant No. 2.
    在以下兩張連續照片中,可以看到通往二坪仔的聯絡道路也被炸中。不過究竟二坪仔是這些炸彈的主要目標,還是原本要炸第二發電所的美國飛機炸偏了,就不得而知了。
