1926 Amazing photograph of the three American golfers who swept the podium at the recent British Open as they returned back to the United States to a heroes welcome. Bobby Jones (center) won the event while Al Watrous (left) finished second and Walter Hagen (right) finished third. A fine image from Underwood and Underwood and stamped on the back with a full paper caption as well. This was the FIRST British Open Championship for Jones! The clarity of the image is outstanding with creasing from news-room use and some tape reinforcement being the flaws. None of these affect the figure of Jones himself and the image presents better than the technical grade.
