From American Libraries Direct 11/19/2008:

Search millions of photographs from the LIFE photo archive, stretching from the 1750s to today.  “Some 97% of the photographs have never been seen by the public. The collection contains some of the most iconic images of the 20th century, including works from photojournalists Alfred Eisenstaedt, Margaret Bourke-White, Gordon Parks, and W. Eugene Smith. The images can be found when conducting a Google or Google Image search. Users can also search through the LIFE collection directly.”

Search Tip: Add “source:life” to any Google image search and search only the LIFE photo archive. For example: Academy Awards source:life
