The World Rejoices: Google and Life Join Forces


Google and Life are collaborating to bring to the world ten-million photographs and etchings from the Life photo archives. You can view the millions of high-resolution images from your web browser, and search the archives for such iconic figures as Marilyn Monroe, Muhammad Ali, and Harvard Law School’s formerly favorite son, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.


From the jaws of Google:

Only a very small percentage of these images have ever been published. The rest have been sitting in dusty archives in the form of negatives, slides, glass plates, etchings, and prints. We’re digitizing them so that everyone can easily experience these fascinating moments in time. Today about 20 percent of the collection is online; during the next few months, we will be adding the entire LIFE archive.

Enjoy the photographs, but don’t spend too much time browsing them, you have your own life to live.
