Offered here is an original circa 1897 photographic print of Old Tom Morris. This iconic "Bunker Photo" of Old Tom was taken by photographer James Patrick of Edinburgh. The photo is usually attributed to 1897, though some claim it was taken for Old Tom's 75th birthday in June 1896. Either way, it is quite possibly the most iconic image of Old Tom Morris that exists, with even unsigned examples fetching thousands of dollars (a lesser grade example sold in our Summer 2011 Auction, Lot 290, Final Price: $2,190). This piece was produced by George Stewart & Co. of Edinburgh. Measures 16 1/2" x 12".
