Full image caption

A Salvation Army band playing outside a tobacconist's and a watchmaker's. The latter has its shutters closed. One Salvation Army member stands on a chair and appears to be singing or reading from a book. Two other members on the right look as if they are taking down or putting up a poster. The surface of the pavement is wet.

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.
