According to the New York Public Library's Digital Collection (linked on our website), this iconic portrait was captured by noted St. Andrews photographer James Fairweather. The offered example is an extremely high-quality print (9-3/8 x 14-1/4", mounted on like-sized board) that boasts tremendous image detail, sharp visual contrast and impressive NM condition. It is housed in what appears to be the original frame (14x18), which retains its antique label for print seller David Reed of Edinburgh, Scotland. As golf collectors well know, period images of Old Tom Morris are highly collectible, with an autographed photo having even sold at auction for over $14,000 in 2011.
