Anyone for Tennis

As we are currently saturated with coverage of the Tennis at Wimbledon I thought I might share these with you.

A pair of original pen and ink originals, for illustrations in a 1920's Girl's book. I think this was for Our Girls' Tip Top 1929 published by Renwicks of Otley..

I guess the slightly perplexed look on the girls face is because her racket would appear to be without strings !! --  You can imagine all the girl's busily cutting their string out hoping that it might improve their game.
