Somewhere in India: With the fall of Singapore and the Dutch naval bases, United Nations war vessels must use bases in India for repairs and maintenance. As a consequence, the shipyards and docks along India’s coastline are taxed to capacity. Here, war vessels are being repaired by Indian workers at a dock “Somewhere In India”, June 1942.

Ferrotyped prints are processed in such a way that they are shiny. The print has a sensitive surface, usually thinner, because it was put through a press while still wet.
Ferrotyped prints have a sensitive surface, usually shiny and thinner, because they are put through a press while still wet. Ferrotyping makes the surface of the photograph smoother. Light does not scatter as much on a smoother surface, so this increases contrast. That makes ferrotyped images better for press photography.
