LIFE mag photos via Google search

July 26, 2016

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.

I think it’s safe to assume that a “personal non-commercial” license includes use in a classroom situation. It’s less clear whether you’re allowed to re-post the images publicly, even in PowerPoint slides.

Tip o’ the hat to Joanna Sherbun, who gave me the idea for this post.
