This stunning panoramic photo captures the pageantry of the Opening Ceremonies of the 1912 Olympic Games in Stockholm, Sweden. A silver gelatin print by Svenska Komst displaying perfect contrast, the photo itself measures 19.5x4.25" and is in its original frame, measuring to 24.5x9.5" including matting. Amidst the celebrating throng is Jim Thorpe, who was to secure his claim to the title of Greatest Athlete of All Time by capturing gold in both the pentathlon and decathlon in those games. The toning of the matte adds to the vintage appeal of this EX+ offering.
