Olympics

£3.99

Product description

'Olympics' is a light-hearted history of the world's greatest sporting event, brought to life through recently commissioned photographs taken around the streets of Britain. What has Olympic Chicken & Pizza got to do with Usain Bolt's historic 100m victory? What about Olympic Hair Salon s connection with Eric Liddell and the famous Chariots of Fire Olympics of 1924? Why is Olympic Tyre Car Repairs the perfect image to explain the chaos of the bike racing in London in 1908? The cheating shenanigans of a marathon runner; that'll be an Olympic Taxi for Frederick Lorz. From Olympic Kebab Shop to Olympic Sewing Machines, the photographs help tell the most outrageous and fascinating Olympic stories since the Games began
