[Blast walls]
Photographer Glenn S. Hensley
Date 1944
Subject war-ready; building; business district; commerce
Notes "Blast walls show as well as the hand-spattered paint on building walls, an attempt to tone down their brightness during black-out periods. This is in Calcutta's central business district, but I do not know the name of the buildings or the exact location. The evidence of an accidental fire still shows on the ground level of the tallest structure."
Location Calcutta
