World Tennis Magazine (US) Australians On Tour from 1950′s & 1960′s editions

by rod on February 5, 2012

Recently we received approval from the magazine owner Randolph Walker to scan some photos from some of the early World Tennis Magazines from the 1950′s and 1960′s. In 2011, I was lucky enough to buy a package of magazines from Sydney that spanned late 1950′s to early 1980′s.

Greatly appreciated since copyright laws these days tend to stymie access to any material which deserves to be shared.

Naturally, throughout this period, the Aussies were well represented so it is again with sincere thanks to Randolph that we can present an array of photos not normally available.
