Some of the encampments at Walton Camp, Lahore, which was set up after the 1947 Partition of Indian subcontinent. This section of encampments was much more organised than most others.
Inside each tent is a charpoy, which was the sitting space during the day and a bed at night. People lived in camps from days to weeks to months.

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