LIFE Photo Archive

The image giant LIFE has teamed up with web search giant Google to host a photo / image archive. This great new resource includes millions of images that are fully searchable through Google. The website states-

Search millions of photographs from the LIFE photo archive, stretching from the 1750s to today. Most were never published and are now available for the first time through the joint work of LIFE and Google.

The images are available in a preview and a larger format. I downloaded a few images and they seem to be averaging about 3" x 3" at 300 dpi. This will make a great resource for image references, historical references and general research. Be sure to check out the LIFE / Google image archive see how it will help you.
