Full image caption

A young man in an overcoat stands in the doorway of the Ebro Club in Chicksand Street, a street off Brick Lane. In the window are adverts for Nelson cigarettes, Pepsi Cola and Tizer. The strong sunlight shows up the shabbiness of the exterior of the building.

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.
