LIFE Photo Archive

November 18, 2008

Via Waxy.org, Search millions of photographs from the LIFE photo archive, stretching from the 1750s to today. Most were never published and are now available for the first time through the joint work of LIFE and Google. An unlike a lot of other bulk photo uploads in the past, they’ve gone through the trouble of adding who the photographer was, a short description, as well as a time and location. LIFE should be commended for preserving and making these images available. There’s some really interesting bits of history there if you dig around. It has the same sort of bizarre attraction as the Guinness Book of World Records did for me as a kid. For example: beer blowing (whatever that’s about), a trampolinist in a space suit, a bug death ray.
