A workman on the back of a truck is mixing tar for mending the road. The truck also carries propane gas canisters. To the right is the side of Mansion House, while the front of the Royal Exchange appears behind the workman.

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.
