Incredible 1924 photograph of the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics in France, not because of what it shows but because of how it arrived in the United States as quickly as possible for publication! The image shows athletes on parade, but the paper caption notes the journey these photographs took to get to the United States for publication. Combinations of airplanes, boats, vessels and airplanes again got this photo from France to the United States in record time! One of the first instances where the journey of a photograph is detailed on the caption! A fantastic piece of Olympic history!
