Two cooks stand beside one of 3 vats that stand in the Los Angeles County General Hospital's kitchen. The leftmost cook stands behind and looks on as the other cook stirs the boiling liquid in the vat with a wooden plank. In the lower right corner, another vat sits closed and in partial view. Another vat sits open behind the cooks. Activity in the kitchen is visible in the background.
