This man was photographed on the steps of a house near Ladbroke Grove station in Notting Hill. After the war, Notting Hill and Notting Dale were a declining part of the inner city. Its multiple occupation houses were rented mostly by single men and prostitutes plied their trade in the streets. Caribbean immigrants with little money, who had difficulty in renting elsewhere, were able to find accommodation here. Eventually some of them opened cafes and clubs. Notting Hill then gained a reputation as a bohemian area and began to attract a young, trendy crowd of white as well as black people.
