Three cooks attend to a vat in the Los Angeles County General Hospital's kitchen. One man bends over in front and to the left of the vat. He monitors liquid flowing out from the bottom of the vat and into a bucket. Behind him the large, cylindrical vat sits elevated from the ground at center. On either side of it, a cook stands on a step stool. The cook at left looks down into the vat while the cook at right stirs the vat's contents. Subway tiles cover the back wall and another vat stands in partial view at right.
