Bye Bye Birdie

Ran across an article in Entertainment Weekly at lunch this week. Had a blurb about a neat website. Mad Men Footnotes pulls out historically references from the show Mad Men and tell you a little more on them.

Life Magazine 1960s Ann Margaret Bye Bye Birdie

One of the things they mentioned was that Life Magazine put up scanned copies of all of their issues up to 1970. How awesome! And what a resource for old photographs, articles, and advertising. You can get to them thru Google Books or the Life website. If you have never heard of Google Books before, you will love it. They have scanned most of the contents of the New York Library and in various partnerships have made them all freely accessable. For more recent books they have only snippet views but even that is helpful.
