British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

In conjunction with an exhibition at the British Library on Collecting the Olympic Games Bob Wilcock is giving a talk on 1908 Marathon, the greatest race of the twentieth century, with an overview of the London 1908 games. It is illustrated with press cuttings, postcards, and private photos. Many of the images have rarely been seen since they were first taken.

The free exhibition, organised by the British Library and the International Olympic Committee, with members from the Society of Olympic Collectors, also contains some photographic images. It runs from 25 July until 9 September at the British Library.

Details of the exhibition and events, including the talk by Bob Wilcock amongst others, can be found here: http://www.bl.uk/whatson/exhibitions/olympex2012/index.html
