Construction Scenes from the 1980 Winter Olympics Lake Placid Site, 1977-78

Seeing as we’re just weeks away from the start of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, I thought I should try to work in at least one Olympic-themed gallery. But this one is a little different, in that it doesn’t show any actual competition. Rather, these are scenes from the construction of the venues at Lake Placid, New York, in preparation for the 1980 Winter Olympics.

According to my information, these shots were taken in the 1977-78 time frame. Click on any photo for the full-size version.
