The camps were not equipped to accommodate thousands of people pouring in after Partition.
In the background, some of the arrivals have neatly piled up bricks to create walls. These walls would have been very unstable, symbolic of the lives of the people residing within them at the time.

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