LIFE photo archive online!

Boy reading "Captain America" (March 1942 issue) at a magazine stand

As the Guardian reports, one of the largest and richest 20th-century photo collections is now (at least partially) online, thanks to a partnership with Google. The Life magazine photo archive can be searched/browsed from a dedicated Web page, or by doing a regular Google image search with “source:life” at the end.

As mentioned previously, we know that Hugh Morton submitted and published photos in Life — does anyone know of specific issues? His work is not represented in the Google archive as of now, but with plans for 10 million photos to be made available, maybe he will pop up yet?

  1. I haven’t yet found any Hugh Morton images in “Life” magazine, but I did find a Morton picture of UNC All America Charlie Justice in the December 13, 1948 issue of “Time” magazine on page 78. (Same company)

  2. Thanks for the LIFE on Google note. Looks like I finally have a reason to stop haunting the Library of Congress Flickr site.
