The first Olympic Winter Games took place in 1924, over 80 years after the magic of photography was invented. That means it’s possible for us to take a photographic look back at each and every event, beginning with the inaugural competition that took place in Chamonix, France. Pictured above is Great Britain’s curling team, looking dapper in coordinating sweaters and caps. Even in the early days, efforts were made to appear uniform.
