    Tennis: Betty Nutall is beaten by Joan Fry at Wimbledon

  • Description

    Item title reads: "Miss Fry, finalist in 1925 - wins after hard fought duel with 16 year old Betty Nutall. "

    Wimbledon

    16 year old Betty Nutall is beaten, but we see some excellent play. The girls wear knee length dresses. There is a brief shot of the scoreboard and the crowd. The girls shake hands over the net, and pat each other on the back as they get their things at the side of the court.

    Note : Tennis in the old days - very sporting

    "Betty Nutall" in the text, and "Betty Nuttall" in tags, should both read Betty Nuthall.

    "Miss Fry" referred to in text and tags is Joan Fry.
