Because we’ve all had to wait for the bus/train/airplane like this at one point in our lives!
From September 1943 in Chicago, here are photos of people waiting at the bus terminal early in the morning. Photographed by Esther Bubley, this one shows a boy asleep in the ‘comfy’ terminal benches at 5am. How many times have I tried to sleep on one of the benches specifically divided so that people don’t use them as a bed? Too many.
Here are links to a few photos of the other people in the bus terminal that day: A woman and a baby, a young couple, and a woman trying to curl up on one of the impossible benches.
