Photographs of the First Winter Olympics

The very first Winter Games were held in Chamonix, France, in 1924. Athletes competed in most of the same sports as they do today: speed skating, figure skating, skiing, ski jump, curling, bobsledding, and hockey (plus, there was a military patrol competition, won by the Swiss). But the look was different, as you can see from the business attire worn by the speed skaters here. See a collection of pictures from those first Games at Slate. -via Digg
