    Old Swimming Photos from LIFE Magazine

    Now, this is very cool. Google and LIFE Magazine now have an online photo archive of images taken for LIFE magazine.

    They have a bunch of old swimming and Olympic photos.

    To view, go to:
    http://images.google.com/hosted/life

    There is a search box. I have searched on the following terms so far:

    Swimming
    Swim (provides different results than the previous term)
    Olympics
    Olympic (again, provides different results than the previous term)


    The web site says that a lot of these photos were never published. LIFE must have done a story about Ohio State swimming, as there are a lot of photos from a 1953 Ohio State swim meet.

    Note, too, that you can search the LIFE archives from any Google image search by adding the phrase “source:life” to the end of the search. For example: swimming source:life

    That's a really cool site, but I have to be careful I don't get sucked into the "time sinkhole" associated with it. Thanks for posting it.
