Arrival of Olympic Athletes - A Momentous Meeting in Stockholm

EDITORS COMMENTS
In this striking photograph taken by Bain News Service in 1912, two American athletes, Thomas H. Lilley and Andrew Sockalexis, arrive at the Olympics held in Stockholm, Sweden. The image captures a moment of anticipation as these remarkable individuals prepare to take part in the marathon event. Thomas Lilley (1887-1954), a long-distance runner from America, is seen carrying his luggage while sporting a stylish boater hat and dressed in formal attire. Beside him stands Andrew Sockalexis (1891-1919), an athlete of Penobscot Indian Nation descent, who also competed in the marathon. This photograph not only documents the arrival of these talented athletes but also serves as a testament to their cultural heritage and national pride. The image is a poignant reminder of the Olympic spirit that brings people together from around the world, transcending borders and cultures. The Bain News Service's iconic glass negative captures this moment with precision and poise, freezing time for eternity. This photograph has been preserved in the Library of Congress' Heritage Images collection, ensuring its legacy as an important piece of sports history.
