At the 1867 Grand Golf Tournament, a photographer was present to take 3 group photographs of the early professional golfers. This was simply unheard of at the time, though the exact reason for the photographer's presence has been lost over time. That group included both Old Tom Morris and his then-16 year old son Young Tom Morris.

This original gravure (Version 1 - Young Tom on Steps) depicts the greatest golfers of 1867. This piece measures 11 1/2” x 9 1/2”. This photograph is from the Grand Golf Tournament by Professional Players on Leith Links, 17th, May 1867. Present are Old & Young Tom Morris on the steps, Very Good condition for a 148 year old photograph.
