Anyone for Tennis? Opening of Wellington tennis season, 1915

Opening of the Wellington Tennis Club's Season, 1915

The tennis season is in full swing in New Zealand.

Here is a club photo postcard of the Wellington Tennis Club's opening day in 1915. World War One is already well underway, a man in army uniform stands in the middle of the back row.

Photo by Zak, Joseph Zachariah, 1863-1965, a Wellington photographer who captured many images that fall within the category "social history" around the Windy City in the early decades of the twentieth century. His work is highly sought after by collectors.
