Hello friends. I feel lucky to have stumbled on this group, as perhaps it will help me solve a mystery! I am interested in seeing whether any work survives of a photographer living and working in London in 1948. His name was Tom Thomas and he was in the Air Force during the war and became a professional photographer afterwards. I can't find any listings in public directories for the time, and nor does anything show up on Google. I'd be very grateful if anyone could suggest how I might try to find him! Many thanks :)
