Delightful Life Magazine

I wonder how many of you remember a magazine called Life. The very first magazine came out on November 23, 1936, and featured a cover photo of the Fort Peck Dam which was being built in Montana. I remember that it was this magazine that helped me in school when I needed photos for school projects. These were the old times when there were no personal computers in use and magazines were a great source of information and photos for school children. 

In the U.S. the original Life Magazine folded during the Great Depression but was re-launched as a picture-based periodical. People could see all of the greatest world events in pictures. The magazine became an instant success in its first year and captured interesting moments in photos that amazed the public. At its peak, Life magazine had a circulation of more than 8 million and had a considerable influence on life in America in the beginning and middle of the 20th century.

The last issue of Life came out in 1972, losing readers to the box known as TV. Then in 2004 Life became a weekly publication as a supplement to U.S. newspapers.
