UNREVETTED STORAGE SHEDS
INSEIN, BURMA 
75' x 30' STORAGE SHEDS IN MILITARY DEPOT LAYOUT. Such installation are typical of areas of extensive land campaigns. Some attempt has been made to follow the natural pattern of terrain and cultivation. However, the uniform size sheds and the road and track activity are distinguishing features. The stores are probably non-explosive and not of highly imflammable type. Some stacks of supplies are present in the, lightly wooded area in right-center of the photo.

SAIPAN 
(1) STORAGE SHEDS (110'x30') WITH LOOSE STORES (FUEL DRUMS AND CRATED SUPPLIES) NEARBY. The two long sheds are quite similar in appearance to the open shed storage present at Rabaul. A narrow gauge track may be seen passing through this area.

(2) TWIN STORAGE SHEDS (Approx 75' x 50'). The character of materials stored in this type shed is not known. It is probably not of a highly immflammable or explosive nature however, as evidenced by the close proximity of the buildings and their unprotected nature. A log piling fence separates the two buildings from each other and a wooded area to their rear.

RANGOON 
STORAGE SHED (Approx 110' X 40') IN CONCENTRATED INDUSTRIAL AREA. Warehouses or this type with large piles of loose stores nearby are common in congested areas. A 12 tank battery of oil tanks is located at top of stereo, a rather typical setup with firewalls between individual tanks. Numerous loose stores are piled a- long the road through the center of the stereo and with in the area occupied by the A. A. battery. Other buildings are dwellings and industrial shops.
