This John Wanamaker, Wissahickon Model, tennis racket was most likely manufactured for the Wanamaker Department Stores by the Wright & Ditson company around 1890. Many times tennis manufacturing companies would make rackets for local sporting goods stores or country clubs that would have their own labels placed on them. John Wanamaker owned a chain of very famous department stores in New York, Philadelphia and Chicago during the late 1800s and early 1900s. The Wanamaker stores eventually were taken over by Macy’s Department Stores. This item can be viewed at our Madison Avenue NYC location.
