A cook pours liquid from a saucepan into a bucket while standing beside a large vat in the Los Angeles County General Hospital's kitchen. The large, metal vat sits at left with its lid flapped open. In front of it at right, several buckets sit atop a metal table. The cook stands behind the table and to the right of the vat. He appears to stand propped on an unseen stool. In one hand he holds a bucket, which catches the liquid he pours from a saucepan he holds in his other hand. Other kitchen cooks are visible in the background at right.
