This week, a rare Colt Studio photo of George O'Mara sold for over $200. 

Keen to stoke the theme of homoeroticism, Morrissey chose this buttock-baring photo for Hand In Glove, The Smiths' first release.   Andy Rourke's Dad wasn't pleased.

The sale price: $204.50. See more photos by Jim French, Colt Studios.
