Full image caption

A street sweeper sweeping an alleyway stares at the camera. Behind him is an arch leading out to the road. To the left is the premises of Alfred Hays, a theatrical ticket agent who had branches at 26 Old Bond Street in the West End and 4 Royal Exchange Buildings in the City.

Fred Wilfred worked as Chief Photographer for Hawker Siddeley Aviation during the 1950s. In 1963 he started his own commercial and portrait studio in Hampton Hill. Wilfred was a member of the Richmond and Twickenham Photographic Society and a founder member of the London Portrait Group. Acclaimed for his portraiture and wedding photography, his documentary work, like this photograph, has remained largely unseen.
