the ucla charles e. young research library department of special collections has selected and digitized 5,746 of the more than three million images contained in the los angeles times and los angeles daily news photographic archives. a compelling and easy-to-browse collection, it's like a mini-survey of photojournalistic techniques as the archive is restriced to the time period of 1920-1990. for extra fun browse by subject as there are a lot of things one wouldn't otherwise think to look for in there. enter the archive here.
