Google Image Search Hosts LIFE Image Archive

Google has announced that it has made LIFE Magazine Images available as an archive. The images from the iconic magazine are also available through Image Search. You can view the collection here.

So far, 20% of the total collection is online. The entire archive consists of 10 million photographs. Who are the lucky interns who get to digitize negatives, slides, glass plates, and prints?

Images can also be purchased from LIFE. You’ll see a link for that on the right hand side when viewing an image. But it won’t be cheap.

A framed 1938 photograph of Katharine Hepburn on the set of the play “The Philadelphia Story” (yes, the play not the movie) will run you $79.99.
