M.G. Thomas Dairy and Provisions store on the corner of Woodseer and Deal Streets, near Brick Lane. A man walks up Woodseer Street towards the store. Outside are two prams and racks full of empty milk bottles. There are groceries on display in the window and signs advertising Aspro aspirin, Brooke Bond and Typhoo tea and Lyons cakes.

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.
