STREET MARKETS OF LONDON IN THE 1940S - WALTER JOSEPH

About

Recently acquired by the British Library, LSPF is proud to present this work to the public for the first time. Walter Felix Abraham Joseph (1922-2003) was born in Darmstadt to an Orthodox Jewish couple. Joseph fled Germany as a young man in 1939 (his twin brothers following shortly after) and came to England. As a German national he was interned in the Isle of Man during the Second World War. After the war he was employed in newspaper photographic laboratories, but remained a dedicated amateur and semi-professional photographer for the rest of his life. These fascinating views of London markets, street traders and entertainers were taken between 1947-48.
