Two street entertainers dressed in identical outfits and fezzes perform for a crowd watching them from the pavement. The crowd stands in front of the Ritz cinema where the 1960 Western 'Cimarron' is showing.

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.
