As we move into the second half of London 2012, with the successful opening of the Paralympics, it seems timely to draw your attention to our ebook about the history of the Games in London. Or, in other words, give it one final shameless plug before everyone’s attention moves on to other things.
The London Olympics: 1908, 1948, 2012 discusses the three occasions on which the Games have been held in our city, runs through the history, describes left-over remnants of the stadia, and drizzles the reader in a pleasant dressing of oddball facts and trivia.
