Women's Institute members Mrs Randall (left foreground) and Mrs Dodd (right foreground) bottle jam in the Peace Hall (an army hut converted into a village hall) at Rowney Green, Worcestershire. The fruit was provided by people in the village, from their own gardens, and the sugar came from the government. According to the original caption, this centre has made nearly a ton and three-quarters of jam in the three seasons since the scheme began. Mrs Randall is the centre organiser.
