Photograph Album 16

Scope and Content

Entitled 'The Eagles'. Group photographs of members of The Eagles sports club. Originally founded as The Eagles Lawn Tennis Club in 1876 for the blues of St John's, it slowly accepted membership from other College sports teams. By the early 1890's it had become more of a social society. The album contains annual photographs of the club with lists of those present, together with a note of newly elected members. The results of the tennis matches played are also given up to 1889.
