Life Magazine Photo Archives Now Online

Years before it was a Sunday newspaper supplement that presciently united John McCain and a certain Sarah Palin lookalike, Life was a weekly newsmagazine that was the gold standard in photojournalism. Though it's probably bad news that signals the hastening death spiral of glossy news magazines, it's still interesting to look at the Life photo archive, which Google has just put online. Searching on the keywords "Washington DC" turns up some fun stuff, including the picture above of moving boxes at the Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden, taken around the time of its opening in 1974.
