ALL HANDS!

I tried asking for help with this in the Ephemera & Photography section 2 1/2 weeks ago wih no responses, so I'll try here.

I recently tried to go to some saved favorite searches of the Life Magazine photo archives on Google that could be called up by including "source:life" in the search parameter. No luck! My searches went nowhere. I could search for general categories in "Life", but could not find the wonderful groupings that used to be available.

Can anyone with skill at doing internet searches please determine how those old "source:life" searches can be successfully accomplished TODAY?? I hate to think of not having those wonderful pictures readily available for viewing. Google has clearly changed things and have made difficult what used to be easy for even unskilled users. New and improved, I guess......

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Thanks, Support. That is exactly the news I did NOT want to hear. A big "Bronx Cheer" to Google. A tremendously valuable resource gone down the drain...
