Iconic image of Bobby Jones and Wendell Miller surveying the design and construction of what would become Augusta National Golf Club. Miller was the chief engineer of the project. This is an original 1st generation wire photo of this famous image. The original wire slug is attached to the reverse, which is stamped with the date January 2, 1932. Most references to this photo date it to December 29, 1931, so the January 2 date 4 days later is when this photo was used for print publication. 6" x 7".
