Boy Scouts cook vegetables on a fire, which they have built from large branches, bricks and mud, at a fruit-picking camp near Cambridge. Behind them, two other Scouts sit in front of the tent to wash and peel more vegetables, ready to be added to the cooking pots. According to the original caption, most of the cooking in the camp is done by female volunteers, but the Scouts have full responsibility for this fire and for the vegetables cooked on it.
