Full image caption

A street market with stalls and racks of second-hand clothes and shoes under a railway bridge. One of two children sitting in a pram looks at the camera. There are advertisements on the bridge wall for Player's cigarettes and the 1959 film 'The Fugitive Kind' starring Marlon Brando, and a poster protesting against apartheid.

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.
