A woman newspaper vendor wearing a headscarf passes a newspaper to a male customer. The headline boards leaning against the stand advertise newspapers including the Sunday Express and the Sunday Telegraph, the latter running a story entitled 'Eichmann's Capture'.

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.
