               Probably the best example of photojournalism was "Life"  magazine. It was big (14" x 10.5") and it

brought the current events of the world to the masses on a weekly basis. Using it now to look back, we can

relive historical events as they were reported. The advertisements alone give great insight into a way of life

from the past.

               For each issue, I've tried to list some article highlights. Listing is by issue date:
