View down a street. Two men in the foreground are repairing the pavement. A man to the right has opened the door of a car parked at the side of the road. A Union Jack hangs from the front of a building halfway along the street on the left. There are high buildings on both sides of the road.

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.
