There is a surprisingly large number of old postcards with a tennis theme, perhaps reflecting
the popularity of the game in the first half of the twentieth century. Some examples follow.
Rene Lacoste
Tennis - Drobny
I think this is Jaroslav Drobny, who was Wimbledon Champion
in 1954 - no idea who his partner is though.

Davis Cup, Paris
"The Davis Cup at Roland-Garros. Between games, the great
champion Jean Borotra eats some sugar for strength. Marcel

We are in the middle of redesiging all our web pages, including
removing much advertising which we know can be annoying. As a
result many pages - like this one - are not as we would like. Please
bear with us, it takes time and we have about 1400 pages to work on.
