The next stop on our global 1940 tour is Nepal. The Kingdom of Nepal declared war on Germany on 4 September 1939 and became involved in fighting in Burma against the Japanese in 1941.
I found the following photo of Bhaktapur, one of the three main kingdoms of the Kathmandu Valley:

The following photo is also from 1940 and shows a late 30s car being carried to the city because of the lack of accessible roads.
I love the following two photos because they are so different from one another. The first one shows a medical tent handling an outbreak of cholera, the second photo shows a group of men posing for a photograph--both are from 1940.
