#7027 - Chamonix 1924 Winter Olympics (7) Postcards Estimate: $200+

Very appealing set of seven vintage pearl-finish postcards from the Chamonix 1924 Winter Olympics, each approximately 5.5 x 3.25, depicting various participants, teams, and events from the very first Winter Olympiad, which took place at the foot of Mont Blanc in Chamonix, and Haute-Savoie, France, between January 25 and February 5, 1924. Postcard images include: the gold medal-winning Canadian hockey team, the Toronto Granites; ski jumping gold medalist Jacob Tullin Thams of Norway, who is pictured soaring through the air; a bobsled team making a turn on the run; a group of men preparing for a curling match; skaters chasing for a puck during a hockey game; the Czechoslovakian ski team walking in a line; and a bobsled team just moments before their descent. Reverse of two postcards stamped “G. Tairraz,” and all but one of the postcards bearing ink notations in French. In overall fine condition.
