Leith Links

Opening of the Tennis Courts

This photo was taken at the ceremony for the opening of the tennis courts at Leith Links on April 11, 1914, about 4 months before Britain entered the First World War.

Those present have a wide variety of headgear, ranging from flat caps to top hat for the men!

Acknowledgement:  Archie Foley, Joppa, Edinburgh:  January 5, 2010

This is one of a series of photos posted onto boards in an old album that Archie Foley acquired a few years ago.  Archie believes that these are likely to be official photos that probably once belonged to Leith City Council.
