Members of the Women's Institute hard at work making jam in the Peace Hall (an army hut converted into a village hall) at Rowney Green, Worcestershire. Labelling the jam jars in the foreground are Mrs Lee (left) and Mrs Dodd. Weighing the fruit in the centre of the photograph is Mrs Nutting. Another WI member can be seen behind her, also hard at work. 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.
