    Hope you have a few hours.

    A few awesome things:

    1) High resolution
    2) Only tiny LIFE watermark in corner (in case you want to decorate your walls with some great 8x10s...not that I would do such a thing ;D)
    3) You can buy photos

    Some great ones of Muhammad Ali and views of the Earth from Apollo.

    Amazing, amazing stuff.

    Wouldn't take all those captions at face value, though. Found a couple photos of night games allegedly in "Chicago, IL" from May 1955. The Dodgers were in them, but a close inspection shows a side scoreboard that says "Visitors 0, Braves 0," not Cubs. They were mixed in with other photos of the Dodgers at Wrigley Field.

    Some of these shots are just superb:
