In the 1950’s there were a lot of actors living in Kensington. There was even an actors afternoon drinking club at the bottom of Church Street, the Green Room club, now long gone. This stylish fellow is a very 50’s type actor. The hat isn’t really necessary, except for showing him to be a ‘man about town’ a bit of ‘a lad’ It’s a casting photograph and he’s presenting himself as a ‘leading man’. The photographer is also out to make his mark as he’s signed the mount. A simple photo, with a lot going on.
