Hackney Driver would be Tommy Leonard, brother of Mai`s of sweetshop fame.
Looking out the gate at Maryland - the ass looks familiar. The man on the motorbike with sidecar is probably Jackie Elliott as Jackie regularly rode the machine which belonged to his uncle Jim Barrett from Spencer St ( Tommy Robinson`s).
My uncle, Tommy Coghlan RIP,often recalled how he was lucky to survive his teenage years having once ended up in a field on the Breaffy Rd. while being given a spin by Jackie. Having heard many anecdotes of the Barrett`s propensity for engineering it would`nt surprise me if the sidecar was fitted with an ejector seat.
