The boys gather in the dappled shade of the trees to present their baskets of plums to the female representative of the jam company to be weighed. The fruit is weighed by the pound and the weights are entered into a ledger before the baskets are emptied into the firm's bushel baskets for collection.
Boy Scouts bring in baskets of plums for weighing on the fruit-picking farm near Cambridge in 1944.
