Great history here, George Wright of Baseball Hall of Fame original member. the first player in the hall. He owned Wright @ Ditson Sports equipment company, Francis Ouimet worked for him, also my wife's Great Grandfather William Cook did for 25 years, All these guys were golfers. Now the great story is who is this guy with his hand folded? Very possible a famous golfer, If this is a foursome playing golf, O' MY' found mixed in a box of photos just yesterday, i have posted many other of these guy here.I just sent it to Mass golfers Association there museum had a Ouimet history room in there museum, They just emailed me they love it. So anyone know who this guy is possibly this is from 1925-1933, Marked on back To William H Cook, looks like GR which might be short for George Wright

    This was taken somewhere around Boston, the other print posted here of Cook and Ouimet possibly was from the year he won the US open golf 1913 , As you see William was younger, he was born in 1872. He looks like early 50s here or later, late 1920s George died in 1949, he was 89.
