A Future Wimbledon Champion?

Among a number of press cuttings and photographs from the early days of Loftus Youth Club, we have found this image. Our question is who is he, where was the photograph taken and what was the occasion? Betty Garbutt suggests: ”Could this be Mike Jones? He played tennis and badminton for Loftus and I think he worked at Barclay’s Bank.” John Preston Suggests: ”Could be Maurice Jones, he and his brother were much alike.” David McGill has hopefully solved the query with: ”The photograph is Michael Jones, but I don’t know where.” This is further confirmed by Eric Trembath: “It is Michael Jones.”
