This is the start of a panorama of a well-organized camp, probably in the Presidio, the U.S. Army base. The location may be the Presidio Golf Links, on the south side of the base. These Chinese refugees are receiving their ration of rice [?], and the distributor writes down each portion given out.

 
  Refugees from Chinatown were gathered at nearby Fort Mason, then moved to the Presidio Golf Links. Complaints from neighbors of unpleasant cooking odors led to a third move to another Presidio location.
