Walton Camp, a refugee camp set up in Lahore after the 1947 Partition of Indian subcontinent. This image shows a makeshift hospital with a dispensary where the refugees received medical attention at Walton Camp, Lahore. The hospital appears to have been set up in a verandah of a building with no doors. The open space has been covered with dark fabric and patients are waiting outside.

This image is from the collection of F.E. Chaudhry, the only known local Pakistani photographer who captured the events at the time.
