Locals building temporary housing for the railway folk after the 1934 earthquake. Notice the grand, salvaged furniture in the background!

This one was labeled on the back by my grandmother "Temporary buildings for the Europeans to live in" after the earthquake of 1934 demolished many of the railway folks' homes.
