Here's some incredible news! LIFE magazine has their archived photos online. The site is hosted by Google. The photos are organized by century, then by year. I spent several hours perusing the site. It's fascinating!
I love looking at vintage photos, any kind of vintage photos. I like the "people" and "buildings" kinds of photos best, but I'll find anything vintage interesting, even old auto accessories!
I love the "family" kinds of photos-- you know, people on the farm or monarchs in their palaces. Such photos give a wonderful glimpse into the lives of those people of "way back when." This photo of Queen Victoria is stunning, I think. Look at the style of dress!
I suspect this would be a great site for educational uses, too. Very nice!
