LIFE archive added to Google images

Google has announced the LIFE photo archive, a collection of images photographed by LIFE Magazine photographers and newly digitized by Google. The collection which has been added to Google’s Image Search consists of approximately 10 million photos dating back to the 1850’s, of which about 20% has been digitized so far with the rest expected to be added over the next few months. The archive includes many iconic images from throughout the 20th century taken by famous photographers like Gordon Parks, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Margaret Bourke-White, and Dorothea Lange.
