Life Photo Archive

Most of us are aware that Life Magazine has a photo archive, but I always seem to forget too. How is that? Anyhoo, to make it easier on all of us here are the direct links to our favorite decades. Click on the years, not the picture.

1930s
1920s













1940s
1950s













Life sure had an obsession with women preening themselves. FYI- the photos are hosted by Google, so you can modify the search box to look for a specific subject by adding it to the search box, just don't remove the year and source:life items. For example, if I add fashion to the 1940s search I get these results. Fun, right? Here's another for 1950s rock 'n roll. And finally, a search for vintage wedding pics from all years.

I adore old pictures like these. They have so much sophistication and glamor without any effort at all.
