8 Ampton Road, Edgbaston - blue plaque - T. H. Gem and J. B. A. Perera

On a snowy April morning, decided to walk around Edgbaston near Five Ways.

 

On Ampton Road looking for a plaque relating to the first Lawn Tennis game.

 

At 8 Ampton Road where T. H. Gem and J. B. A. Perera played the first game of Lawn Tennis in 1865.

 

Blue plaque from the Birmingham Civic Society, Warwickshire Tennis Players, Calthorpe Estate, and Calthorpe Residents' Society.

  

Zoomed in from the other side of the road.
