1926 Large photograph of golf superstar Bobby Jones and his wife aboard the boat "Macom" that was taking Bobby from the SS Aquitania to New York City where a huge assemblage of fans waited to celebrate with the returning hero. He had just come back from winning the British Open golf crown which was still a relatively early major championship in his career. Crystal clear and bold, this was issued by Underwood and Underwood and is being offered here for the first time ever direct from their archives! The quality of the photo is so nice you can read the fine print on Mrs. Jones' silk banner!
