One of the biggest photo collections in the world that ranges from the 1750s through to the seminal moments of the 20th century and on into the present day was made available to the public online from today.
The bulk of the archive is from Life magazine, the premier platform for photojournalists in the 20th century.
About 10m images will be available, from Marilyn Monroe and JFK to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. About 97% of the pictures have never been seen before.
Google announced today it had done a deal with Life to put their pictures online. Also available is work from other archives, much of it collected by the former Time publisher, Henry Luce.
