Scope and content

English transcription: Arid zones - children who come from miles around to attend this desert school are given a scanty meal at midday.
French transcription: Zones arides - l’école du “bled.” Les écoliers venant de très loin sont nourris frugalement à midi.
Description: More than a dozen boys, seated outdoors on the gound, are sharing a meal, most likely next to their school. In the foreground, one boy is extending a large plate towards another boy sitting across from him, who eats from it. In the background, an older boy or man leans against the wall of a building, preoccupied with something in his hands. They are in a dry, arid, and mountainous landscape.
