Frederick Wilfred: London Photographs 1957-62
A selection of previously unseen images of London taken by unsung photographic talent Frederick Wilfred go on display at the Museum of London next month.
Capturing the British capital when it was emerging from post-war austerity into the swinging Sixties, the black and white images are remarkable documents of city life.
Although little known, Wilfred (1925-2010) was a professional photographer specialising in portraiture, for which he won numerous awards.
His style contains something of the nostalgic charm familiar to post-Second World War photography.
Some viewers might recognise Twickenham Lido (long since closed, pictured above), the corner of Edgware Road tube and the iconic Battersea Power Station pouring smoke from all four chimneys.
There is little documentation to accompany the images and curator Francis Marshall is requesting anyone who recognises and unknown place or person to email email@example.com.
The exhibition of Wilfred's work will form part of the London Festival of Photography.
