Tom Brady and the New England Patriots triumphed at last night’s big game, but they weren’t the only tour de force at the Super Bowl. Walter Iooss was photographing the game, just as he has every Super Bowl since the event’s inception, thus preserving his title as one of the Keepers of the Streak.

So while we congratulate the Patriots, we’ll also take a moment to honor Walter…

Super Bowl IV, 1970, Kansas City Chiefs 23 — Minnesota Vikings 7. “Super Bowl IV was played at the old Tulane Stadium in New Orleans,” recalls Walter. “I love the look of the low winter sun here. Look at the dirt. The chunky helmets. Look at the referee in the back of the photo. It was almost a different sport at this point. Pro football wasn’t making any money back then.” Click image to see more.
