A woman in a housecoat kneels on the pavement to scrub the steps of the entrance to the saloon bar of a pub. Next to her is a bucket and detergent. The pub is situated on a street corner.

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.
