Milestones of the Century

If you are like me, you have been spending a lot of time watching the Olympics this past week.  In the opening ceremonies it was noted that this is the third time that London has hosted the Olympics, the last time being in 1948, reviving the games from a 12 year hiatus due to WWII.

So, I did a little digging and found this fun video clip of highlights of the American team in the 1948 Summer Olympics (don't worry - at just over 3 minutes, it is much shorter than yesterday's video).

I'm also sharing this video (at 8.5 minutes) showing clips from the opening ceremonies of the 1948 games.  Enjoy!

Have a great Wednesday!

  1. Looking at all the clothing styles and the old black and white film makes 1948 seem like the Dark Ages...and that was the year I was born! Wow, I'm old...:)
