Updated: This article has been updated within an hour of publication!
The photograph above has been sent in by Sarah Wickens who contacted our Press Photo History Project looking to find out information about her Grandfather – George Charles Gwilliam – better known as Charles or Charlie Gwilliam who worked at the Evening Standard on the picture desk from the 1930’s to 1966. His nickname at the Evening Standard was Gwil.
Sarah told us: “I have a attached a picture of what I presume is the Evening Standard picture desk at Shoe Lane. His name was Charles Gwilliam – nickname ‘Gwill’. The original is not in brilliant condition as you will see from the condition of the scan but I’m sure you will agree it is a great picture! He is the older man on the left with a cigarette. We think the young chap sat next to him is ‘Young John’ who my mum says was a junior who worked with him on the picture desk.”
