Google magazine archives bring history from LIFE – to life

Google is making more than 10 million photos from Life magazine’s archives available online. Here are a few of the never-before available photographs.

This image of Florence Thompson and her children, taken by Dorothea Lange, is from the same series of photos that produced Lange’s iconic image of Thompson, one that could be the most famous photograph from the Great Depression. This image is part of a newly released archive of Life photos that is being made available via Google Image Search. It was taken in 1936 in Nipomo, Calif.

Americans still don’t like to be reminded of poor people in their midst.
