11. LIFE Photo Archive
Anyone can type in a simple image search into Google, but this new
initiative sponsored by both LIFE and Google takes these searches to a
whole new (and rather interesting) level. Working together, the two
businesses brought together several million images from the 1750s to the
Many of the images have never been seen before, and it's quite a bit
of fun just to look around their offerings. On the site's homepage,
visitors can browse photos by decade, or by a set of basic categories
that include "People", "Places", "Events", and "Sports". These
categories include everything from Jacqueline Kennedy to the Winter
Olympics. If visitors like certain shots, they also have the option to
purchase various prints from the site. It's also a bit fun to type in
any number of phrases to see what they offer, such as "medicine ball",
"lacrosse", or "Robert Maynard Hutchins".
