This is an original vintage poster from the 1940 Olympic Games
which was cancelled due to World War II.
The 1940 Olympic Games were originally scheduled for Tokyo but were cancelled when the Japanese attacked China. Helsinki then stepped in to host the 1940 Games with planning, advertising and construction underway. But in 1939 the Soviet Union invaded Finland and for the second time the 1940 Olympic Games were cancelled. The Olympics were scheduled for London for 1944 but the war had not ended -- thus the 1944 Olympic Games were also cancelled. London then hosted the Games in 1948, Helsinki hosted the Games in 1952, and Tokyo hosted the Games in 1964. This is one of two beautiful posters from the 1940 Olympic Games -- Games that were never held. This is a souvenir to cherish.
