    1908 BRIGHTON TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIP PHOTO.

    With a tradition of tennis matches dating back to 1740, the Prince's Club at Brighton continues through today to offer championship tennis matches on their historic grounds. The two gentlemen seated in the middle of the photograph (C. Fairs & E. Johnson) played for the clubs championship of 1908. "Punch" Fairs emerged victorious in their match.

    Beautifully framed, the photo without the printed matting measures 11 1/2 x 8 3/8". The names of all people pictured are printed below the photo. This picture has outstanding eye appeal and is of historic importance to any tennis collector. Additional shipping cost may apply.
