I read that Life Magazine has put about 20% of their photos online via Google (with plans for 100% in the next few months), and I immediately thought of the great Lindy Hop photos from the 40′s featuring Leon James, Willamae Ricker, Stanley Catron, and Kaye Popp.
The simplest search revealed all the photos available from the session, which includes many not featured in the original magazine.
I then recalled the earlier feature on Frankie Manning, where if memory serves me, a reporter went to a bar where he happened to be dancing and snapped this photo.
Here are some more quick searches I did:
Savoy Ballroom, which features a cool costume contest.
Comment with any other interesting searches you can find!

I found some good ones searching for jazz club, tap dancing, shoes, and entertainer.
