Iconic Image Auction

A signed photograph of the 1905-6 All Black “Originals” has been sold at auction for $41,000. The photo had been kept in Aucklander David Wright’s family since 1906, when it was presented to his grandfather Charles Victor Langsford. Buyer Carrick Belton was prepared to spend up to $100,000 on an item he regards as “extremely valuable from a rugby and NZ history point of view.”
