    I thought his nickname was Willie Tickie as he also repaired watches?

    Yes, he was also known as "Willie Tickie". It was the "Hattie" one that was more relevant to this picture. However, I did mean to go back and add the information about his other nickname and forgot. Thanks for the reminder, Estelle.
