Commuting to and from work wasn't any more fun in Lowell, Mass., in 1941 than it is now. These commuters just came off the train and are waiting for the bus to take them home. Jack Delano, photographer for the U.S. Farm Security Administration, took this photo in January 1941. Library of Congress collection.
