Ryder Cup 1969. Excellent original mono photograph of the British Ryder Cup team, sitting and standing in rows, wearing Ryder Cup blazers and wearing hats supplied by the company. The players are seen trying on their hats, some fitting and others not. Apparently, according to the vendor 'The British Ryder Cup team were all larking about, because when I delivered the hats, they grabbed them without considering that I had got the correct size for each of them.... and messed things up'. Players featured include Peter Alliss, Bernard Gallacher, Peter Townsend, Neil Coles, Brian Barnes, Christy O'Connor, Brian Hugget etc. Some minor creasing and tears to the edges of the photograph. The photograph measures 11"x7", mounted, framed and glazed 15"x12.75". Sold with two other photographs of the 'Ryderettes', professional lady golfers who helped out at the tournament wearing caps produced by the company.

The lady professionals are named to the base of the photographs. Sold with a further colour photograph of the 1990 Curtis Cup ladies team wearing hats produced by the company and two 'Variety Club of Great Britain Golfing Society' colour photographs featuring Kenny Lynch and Henry Cooper with various golfers at Walton Heath Golf Club in April 1986. 9"x11".
