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.
