Dalmeny Place at the junction with Kirkstall Road, Scooter Boy (Burley) (5 comments)
Black & White image1969. Image shows a young 'Scooter Boy' as he sits on his customised machine in Dalmeny Place, near the junction with Kirkstall Road. The white painted brick building on the right is Lens Scooter Shop at number 255 Kirkstall Road. Italian motor scooters, like Lambrettas and Vespas, became part of a youth subculture that originated in the industrial north of England in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The scooter is a 'cutdown' where parts of the bodywork have been cut away to expose the mechanics. The owner has also added chrome plated accessories and extra mirrors. Typically, the boy is wearing an army surplus type parka and a thin scarf. Evidence of demolition is in the background with an area of wasteland where Dalmeny Street and Roseberry Terrace once stood, Roseberry Street is still standing, top left. These streets were red brick back-to-back terraced homes. Running across the background is the Cardigan Clothing Factory. There is a soft drink delivery wagon parked behind the boy.
