London's Olympic history comes to life (UK)

Over 1,700 images of London's previous Olympic Games in 1908 and 1948, together with British Olympians and Paralympians throughout history, can be seen for the first time on a new website. The website includes many unseen images that have been taken from archival documents, newspapers, journals and ephemera currently in the care of the British Library, London Metropolitan Archives and 23 other archival repositories in London and the South East of England. The project was led by Archives for London Ltd in partnership with London Metropolitan Archives and the British Library. It has been made possible by funding grant of £49,400 from the Heritage Lottery Fund and is one of the Archives and Records Association Pace Setter projects
