My favourite (inevitably, perhaps, given my connection with the place) is the Moscow 1980 set. There's a quote on one poster from the then Soviet leader, Leonid Brezhnev, which encapsulates late 1970s Russia to me:
"The USSR has supported and will continue to support the modern Olympic movement."
Others I spoke to were drawn to the Berlin 1936 images or to the fabulous eccentricity of Barcelona 1992.
Which is your favourite?
The project at the Shipley, which includes sporting activity behind the gallery for Open Weekend, family events, a poster design competition for young people and the legendary 'Shipley Lates', has been granted the London 2012 Inspire mark.
It's Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums' second Inspire project so far (the first was for last year's Creative Spirits) and if the energy, commitment and innovative approach of the staff is anything to go by, it won't be their last.
Meanwhile, over the river and also under TWAM's auspices is the recently re-opened Hancock Museum. There have been queues outside in the 3 weeks since it opened.
The collection is strong on natural history. Personal highlights include the stuffed badgers and the real live 'giant hairy scorpions' (full title on the label).
Not immediately obvious how a Games-inspired project might develop, but if anyone can do it, it'll be Alec Coles and his team.
After all, we have a very broad definition of culture in our Cultural Olympiad...
