This is said to be a drawing from the 1879 Irish Champonships in Dublin. This was the first major event for women, the Wimbledon committee thought it wasn't proper to have women in public. The Irish led the way, for many years it was considered to be THE biggest event to win.

Note how the sidelines have a cord to separate the crowd from the players. In the very first years spectators thought notihng of shouting out things like "Hit it to her backhand!", "To the left!", etc.
