Full image caption

Three young men sit around a table inside a coffee bar. The men wear jeans and zip up jackets and one has a crash helmet on the stool next to him. There is a jukebox to the left and a counter clad in bamboo to the right. A coffee machine is visible on the counter at the right edge of the image.

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.
