    How uncomfortable and cumbersome the ladies' clothing must have been!

    No back hand or over head smashes from these ladies - just a gentle underarm swing to pop the ball over the net...

    Posing with a tennis racquet doesn't actually mean that you were actually playing tennis.

    "Francis Hales (1822-1900), Anglican clergyman, was born in County Limerick, Ireland, son of Francis Hales, quartermaster in the 40th Regiment, and his wife Catherine. He went with his parents to Sydney in 1826, Hobart Town in 1827 and Bombay in 1829. His father died in January 1832, leaving an estate in Hobart valued at £144. Francis returned to Britain with his mother; they lived with his guardian, Henry Roche, on the Isle of Man. In 1842 Hales entered Trinity College, Dublin (B.A., 1846), became curate at Castlebar, and was made deacon and in 1847 priested by the bishop of Tuam. With his wife and four children he sailed in the Clarence and arrived at Launceston in November as chaplain of Trinity parish." More - adb.anu.edu.au/biography/hales-francis-3690
