Vintage tennis racquet by John Holden of Baker Street



I'm trying to work out when this racquet was made. It was made by John Holden and the address given is 232 Baker Street, London NW1 and seems to be called a 'Super Holden'. There is an advert for John Holden in this magazine from 1906. However, wikipedia makes clear that the numbers were added to postcodes in 1917 so it must be some time from 1917 onwards. But this racquet from circa 1920 looks more advanced and potentially modern.
