Summary

A collection of 20 postcards which take a fascinating look at the modern Olympic Games, from Athens 1896 to the build-up to London 2012 - each with a description - taken from the world-famous archives of Getty Images. The emphasis is on the two previous Games held in London, in 1908 and 1948. By turns informative and astonishing, heroic and daring, quirky and amusing, the result is a dynamic and absorbing visual biography of the Olympic Games through the ages.
