Three butchers stand behind butcher block preparation tables in the Los Angeles County General Hospital's kitchen. The tables sit in the foreground, entering frame from the sides and angling back towards center. The butchers stand behind the tables and prepare shanks of raw meat that sit atop the tables. The butcher at center sharpens his knives. Light streams in from a window in the background at left. Subway tiles line the back corner of the room at center and shanks of meat sit in partial view atop stacked trays along the right edge.
