Always helpful Ender pointed the way to This Nice AJR Story on Life magazine, and how it reflected life from the past decades.
The author has been collecting library-bound volumes of Life for almost 20 years, with 95 volumes so far, for which he has paid a total of $2,523 so far, at an average cost of $26.56 per volume.
