A woman with her family, making her way to Lahore. Displaced from her home somewhere in India and very likely to have made it through a rough and challenging journey, the feelings of exhaustion and relief are evident on her and her family members' faces.

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