Here is nice original 1976 Olympics which was held in Montreal, Canada.

The poster display victory podium with three female athletes. In the background is a few Canadian athletes carrying the Canadian flag in the opening ceremony and to the right is an athletes running with the Olympic torch. In the upper right corner is the official logo of the event and the in bottom is pictures of the Olympic stamps made for the games. The stamps makes me believe that the poster might was created to advertise the Olympic stamps and that the poster might was used in post offices.

The most notable events during the 1976 Olympic was when most sovereign African, and a few other, nations boycotted the Montreal Games when the International Olympic Committee (IOC) would not support, as had other international sporting organizations, the banning from competition of those countries whose athletes had participated in sporting events in South Africa as long as apartheid continued. The New Zealand rugby team had been touring South Africa during apartheid and were excluded from international sporting events due to implementation of the anti-apartheid policy.

Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
