EDITORS COMMENTS
Step into the enchanting world of Edwardian leisure and enjoy a game of Garden Ping Pong as depicted in this advertisement from the Illustrated London News Ltd, featuring an image from Mary Evans Prints Online, dated 1901. The advertisement showcases Hamleys' innovative Garden Ping Pong set, a delightful addition to any garden parlour during the summer months. The image captures the essence of the craze that swept through England at the turn of the century, with a couple dressed in fashionable Edwardian attire engaging in an animated match. The table, adorned with a crisp white tablecloth and surrounded by colorful pansies, is the perfect setting for this delightful pastime. Ping Pong, also known as wiff-waff, gossima, or simply table tennis, was a popular sport that originated in England in the late 19th century. The game quickly gained widespread popularity and became a staple of social gatherings and family outings. Hamleys, a renowned British toy retailer, capitalized on this trend by introducing the Garden Ping Pong set, allowing people to enjoy the game in the fresh air and sunshine. The advertisement's playful illustration invites us to imagine the laughter and camaraderie that must have filled the garden air as friends and family members gathered around to play. The set, complete with its net, bats, and balls, is a testament to the enduring appeal of this simple yet engaging game. As we admire this charming snapshot of the past, we can't help but be transported back in time and feel the excitement and joy that surrounded the Garden Ping Pong craze of 1901.
