History: Life's photo archive

New, comment

This shot of a rowing team throwing its coach into the water (full image below) is from 1946 and comes courtesy of Google hosting Life magazine's awesome photo library. It's cool if you want to see Joe Namath shirtless (great if you like hairy chests) or images from the Civil War. The archive goes back to the 1860s and is a terrific resource for history and photography buffs and is a real time-killer.

See full-size image of photo above.
