Tennis and tea in Hampshire, England

Since the U.S. Open tennis championship is ending this weekend, here’s a CDV from the relatively early days of the sport.  The family isn’t identified, but the photo was taken by Samuel Whitbread of Havant, Hampshire.  CDVs were common from the 1860s through the 1880s, and I haven’t found dates for Whitbread’s studio, so it’s hard to say when this one was made.
