Just a step back as I found my 1912 Inauguration of Olympic stadium ticket...hope to find my opening day ticket at some point! I have a piece of history relating to the building of the stadium in the form of a ‘lottery ticket’. A lottery was instituted to raise funds to build the stadium.

Lottery ticket and information about the lottery:

Inauguration ticket and postcards of inauguration:

Postcards etc...



Different reprints:

More cards:
