My grandparents lived at Thurla from about 1920 to 1942. They played tennis and had twins (M & F) born 1923. There are not 4 men playing as a woman can be seen at the far end of the court and the photographer was a woman. I contend my father is one of the twins, my grandparents are playing tennis and the photographer is my great aunt Grace Wood.
