A high street with shoppers. A man wearing a suit and cap stands in the foreground, hands in pocket, smiling at the camera. Behind him is an optician's with Christmas decorations in the window. The hands of a clock attached to the optician's sign show the time 12.20.

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.
