Pictured (possibly outside the Hackney Empire in Mare Street, Hackney) in 1936, tram number 9 is advertising the Whit Bank Holiday Monday meeting at The Wick, Hackney v All Americans. Also advertised on the tram is American Putt Mossman’s Motorcycle rodeo (this was a form of motorcycle tricks and skills) with his troupe of World Champion Motor Cycle Stunt Riders.They performed their tricks and skills after the American team lost 66-27 to Hackney!
More on Putt Mossman and his Hackney meeting can be found here

Hackney Stadium’s main public entrance. How many of us passed through those turnstiles I wonder?
