Description: The AccuNet/AP Photo Archive is a database of approximately 500,000 current and archived photos from the Associated Press's 50 million image print and negative library. It is updated by an average of 800 contemporary photos each day. The best 200 of them are retained permanently in the database, while the rest are removed after 12 months. The Photo Archive's historical collection features notable figures and images from significant events of the 20th and, occasionally, the 19th centuries (an 1844 photograph of Abraham Lincoln). Each photo is accompanied by a caption identifying details of the photo and providing historical context.
