A man plays the accordion in the foreground, while a woman in a coat with a large check pattern walks in front of him. Behind him is a group of people, perhaps waiting to cross the road. In the background are high buildings.

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.
