Olympics in London Weren't Always So Glamorous
In 1948, the Summer Olympics were held in London.
These were the first official games held in 12 years due to WWII.
At the time, these games were held at the best facilities in the world and the Olympians were treated like royalty.
It's kind of funny how different our standards are today.
Torch-bearer, John Mark, arrives at opening ceremony. He was the last of the runners bringing the Olympic flame from Greece and he arrived at Wembley Stadium for the opening ceremony.
'Decathlon Reflections.' Umm, those are some crazy puddles on the track!
Work in progress at the "Olympic Village." This is where the Olympians stayed during the competition, fancy!
The interior of one of the finished huts which housed eight athletes. I guess you really got to know your neighbor.
