Google has added one more interesting facet to its already impressive search capabilities. You can now hunt for priceless, high-resolution photographs from the Life Magazine photo archive. The archive has over 2 million photographs, and soon, another 8 million will be uploaded by the search giant. The images have been collected from a period spanning from the 1750s to the 1970s.
