I've read a couple of blog posts this week on Google's plan to post online photo archives from Life Magazine. According to the press release, the public has not yet seen about 97% of the Life photos. About 10 million pictures will be added to Google's Image Search, and some date back to the 1750's.
David Warlick wrote about the project on his 2 Cents blog. I'll let you read his post. Or you can get info right from the horse's mouth--The Official Google Blog.
What a great source of historical images for digital storytelling projects!
