Google, Life and newspapers through the years

by andybechtel

Google and Life magazine have joined forces to create an archive of millions of photographs. Many of these images, some taken as early as the 1860s, have never been published.

The search seems to rely heavily on the cutline content. Here are a few of my favorite photos involving newspapers:

  • The newsroom at a student newspaper at Yale University. (1942)
  • Newsday publisher Alicia Patterson reading her paper in the back of a limousine. (1958)
  • The editor of the Kansas City Star looking at a story with someone who may be a copy editor. (1954)
  • Subway riders in New York “deprived” of news during a newspaper strike. (1958)
  • Gandhi reading a newspaper. (1946)
