Submarine Photos from LIFE Magazine Now Available on Google

Google has opened an online photo gallery that will feature millions of images from Life magazine's archives. Most of these images have have never been seen by the public before, because about 97 percent of the magazine's collection have never been published.

The new service, available at, debuted yesterday with about 2 million photos. The entire collection consists of approximately 10 million images.

Among the photographs in the collection are a number of photographs of submarines. Among the many photographs available are USS R-12 (SS-89) (shown at the top), the first nuclear powered submarine, USS Nautilus (SSN-571) (above), and the first nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine, USS George Washington (SSBN-598) (below). Many other submarines are already featured in the collection.
