This is my mum’s brother, Wilfred Camenzuli. Born in Alexandria, Egypt and raised in Tooting, south London.
Back then, everybody in south London carried a shooter.
Wilf was always taking pictures. Here’s one of my mum and dad, looking unbearably glamorous.
He once made me and my sister watch a horror film so he could get a photograph of us cowering.
And here’s another of me and my sister, this time feeding pigeons in Trafalgar Square. I wonder how many thousands of similar photographs exist in photo albums around the world?
Wilf also took dozens of photographs of London in the 1970s and early 1980s. I always thought he had a great eye. Here are some of the best.
