A crumbling wall with the word 'Shelters' painted on it in capitals, with an arrow, probably remaining from World War II. Some railings and an area of waste ground are visible.

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.
