Two schoolboys standing by some railings. The taller boy eats an apple while holding up a cigarette for the shorter boy to light his own cigarette from. There is a row of terraced houses opposite and cars are parked on both sides of the road.

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.
