London 1948

The last time the Olympics were held in London was 1948.  Earlier today, the New York Times put out a fantastic photo essay of American athletes who competed in these games.  Spandex-wise, it seems that for the 1948 games there was a near across-the-board theme of blue or red (hard to tell from a black and white photo) right to left diagonal stripes on a white background.  Simple, classic.
