Some of the earliest photographs taken of the Wimbledon tennis championships have emerged after 104 years.<br />
<br />
The black and white snaps were taken by a spectator at the 1910 tournament and many show the prolific champion of the day, Tony Wilding.<br />
<br />
The images include shots of a primitive-looking Centre Court as well as some of the outside courts that are separated by waist-high netting.<br />

Wimbledon is renowned for its tradition and formality but the conservative outfits worn by male and female players and fans are in stark contrast to today's fashion.
