Hall family in motorcycle & sidecar

William Charles Hall married Maud Snell at Badsey in 1912. The picture shows them with their first son William Henry Hall who was born on 3 July 1913 and was always known as 'Harry'.

The motorcycle was a Hazlewood, who were in business from 1905 to 1923. Most of their production was exported to the colonies, with very few machines reaching the home markets. The sidecar is of a type used prior to World War I. The bike is believed to have a V twin 499 cc engine. The mascot on the handlebars is a golly doll produced by Robertsons Jams around 1910.

William Hall was a son of Owen and Eliza Hall living at Auburn Villa (now 7 Willersey Road). The photograph was kindly lent to us by Robert Hall.
