The Lively Morgue – A Treasure House of Photographs.

Weekly posts from the NY Times archive of photos – fronts and backs.

The size of The Times archive? “Our best guess is five million to six million prints and contact sheets (each sheet, of course, representing many discrete images) and 300,000 sacks of negatives, ranging in format size from 35 millimeter to 5 by 7 inches — at least 10 million frames in all. The picture archive also includes 13,500 DVDs, each storing about 4.7 gigabytes worth of imagery.

Thanks to Rachel Williams for this.
