We're excited to announce the availability of never-before-seen images from the LIFE photo archive. This effort to bring offline images online was inspired by our mission to organize all the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. This collection of newly-digitized images includes photos and etchings produced and owned by LIFE dating all the way back to the 1750s.

Norms are stricter now than yesteryear. Found at least a couple questionable pics. For instance, does a full frontal of a 1-2 year old boy qualify as kiddie pic? Is it legal to publish that online?

It's certainly a stunning gallery. I wish there were a direct way to purchase digital reproductio rights for some of them.

Montresor

My guess is that it would depend on the context in which the image appears. In this case it's dealing with American history. I don't see any problems with it.
