This is the second photo on this blog showing a family in the UK in their garden with rackets. Well, only one racket, but they seem to be having plenty of fun, anyway. This is a cabinet card, while the photo I uploaded a month ago was a smaller carte-de-visite (Tennis and tea in Hampshire, England). The rackets in that image were of an earlier design, closer in their proportions to those used in badminton, while the one above is similar in size and shape to tennis rackets used well into the twentieth century.
The photo came from Kettering, Northamptonshire, but the card has no information on it to help identify the original location or photographer.
Incidentally, the more common spelling in the UK seems to be racquet, and I initially used that spelling in this post, but later decided to use the standard American racket throughout the blog, for the sake of consistency.
