Applying hot tar, these roadworkers are asphalting wooden blocks that they had previously laid on the road surface.
Wolfgang Suschitzky photographed the everyday life of London. 'I take pictures of whatever attracts my eye, that is the essence of photography, you are tempted by views of other life', he said.
Suschitzky worked as a film cameraman in nearby Soho. Between his working hours, he created a series of photos depicting the activity in and around Charing Cross Road.
