Exploring LIFE’s Photos

Whenever I get bored, I usually find interest in looking through Google’s archive of LIFE Magazine photos.

I found these two series that make me wish for a summer vacation!

I put the search field phrase at the bullet points and linked each pic to the site as well.

  • 1950s vacationing american family source:life

VAF_sisters

VAF_fish

VAF_washing

  • 1950s beach bums source:life

BB_beachbeauty
BB_haircut
BB_surfing

I noticed that the results page does not show all the pics in the series.  If you click on one picture to view it, on the right side of the screen there are thumbnails with “More” above it.  Click through that and you’ll find many more!
