Google has just launched a service hosting images from LIFE magazine, back to about … forever!
“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.”
You can also browse by people, events, culture, and more, or use search terms.
Oddly concurrently, Listverse recently published a haunting list of the last known photographs of – mostly – well-known people.
Other entries include Einstein, Monroe, Princess Di, and of course Hitler. (And Anne Frank.) Each item includes the circumstances of the photos and their discovery.
