Bus Story

In 1943, Esther Bubley, a photography program graduate working at the Office of War Information in Washington DC, received a four week assignment to document bus travel in the South and Midwest.  This was wartime America.  Gasoline rationing was in effect, so bus riding had soared in numbers.  Her photos document a long-gone America.  Below is a sampling - you can find more at Mashable.
