Today's Retro Photo: Col du Tourmalet

Two views of the Tourmalet in the Tour de France: 1954 and 1990 (with Greg Lemond astride a Campy-equipped Look bicycle).

Interesting to note that the altitude of the pass rose one meter in the 46 years between the photos--it was shown as 2,114 meters in 1954, and 2,115 in 1990.
