    Being pedantic this is bottled - not canned - food.

    Bottling is a process that can be carried out in a home environment and I imagine the whole purpose of the photo was to encourage women to grow and preserve their own food during the war. Bottling only requires strong glass jars with an airtight seal but no other special equipment.

    Canning can be carried out on a small scale but is usually a factory process on a commercial scale in view of the special equipment needed..
