The tennis court, summer 1938, taken at leHavre.
Thank you, Kheyo, for the compliment on the collection. I've been at it for about a year now and have had some great fortune in finding things.

Wow, these are such fantastic pictures! Thanks for sharing them! How do you manage to aquire all these?

Looks can be deceiving, but isn't that someone skeet shooting of the side of the ship in one of your pictures? Unless I'm seeing this wrong, it certainly looks like that man has a shotgun, and it seems like there's a mount for a pigeon launcher to his left.

Interesting stuff...
 
Here is another early color photograph that has also been retouched to enhance this early attempt at color photography.
