Empire Stadium – London, UK

 

The 1948 Summer Olympics were also held in London, but the venue for athletics this time was Empire Stadium.  Never heard of it?  How about Wembley Stadium?  The original Wembley was officially known as Empire Stadium, and was built in 1923.  The original stadium however was completely demolished in 2003, and replaced by the current Wembley Stadium that we have today.  Obviously the Google pic today is of the new stadium, but below are two of the old one.
