LIFE Magazine’s Photo Archive Hosted by Google
You can imagine how massive LIFE magazine’s photo archive must be, and the task of putting these memorable images could only be hosted by one name Google. Dating back to the 1750’s and through to the present day the archive amasses close to 10 million images. Former TIME publisher Henry Luce’s collection is included as well which contains the entire works of Life photographers Alfred Eisenstaedt, Gjon Mili and Nina Leen, the Zapruder film of the Kennedy assassination; Dahlstrom glass plates of New York from the 1880’s; and Hugo Jaeger’s images of Nazi-era Germany. With hi-res images available for free and print versions can be purchased straight from Google this is some great news for historicans. Take a look here.
