Migration of some refugees from East Punjab (India) to West Punjab (Pakistan) on a bullock cart. An extended family is seated on a bullock cart with as many belongings as they could bring. Their journey would have lasted days, if not weeks. Both the people and animals bore the brunt of Partition.

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