Two centuries of Life magazine photos online now

Google’s oft-stated mission of “organizing all the world’s information” yesterday added something a little more interesting than robot-crawled website caches – Life magazine photos documenting over two hundred years of history.

Right now about 20 percent of the archive is online, but Google says the entire 10-million-strong collection will be up soon.

Just to keep things slightly on-topic, here’s a link to some historical photos of Tokyo. Be sure to check out the images of the city after the September 1945 air raids.
