      minicapt,
      I thought it just a bit strange that it was an English paper which published these photos. I was quite surprised they were taken by Stanley Kubrick. I guess I never thought about what him before films.

    How many of these newspaper reading passengers would complain today that young people only stare at their smartphones?

      Birgit,
      Given that most of these riders seem to be on the older side, I suspect most of them would though people do try to be anonymous on the train, no eye contact.

    This pic reminds me of riding the E train to work and back in NYC in the 1960s to a summer job. I would walk to the station on Hillside avenue and buy a copy of the ‘Gray Lady’, The NY Times. I never got through the entire paper but reading the Times made me feel like an intellectual. 🙂

    On the way home I would read a paperback book I had stashed in my pocket. Unlike the man in the photo I was raised to give my seat to a lady. My cousin was more progressive. He would say that if they want equal pay and opportunity they should stand just like the men. However, he would give up his seat to a pregnant woman or with one carrying a baby.

    Today I read the Times and the Washington Post on my iPod because I want to read a paper that doesn’t produce fake news. 🙂

    Today was a beautiful day with cool 50 degree morning and a high temperature of 80 degrees. This morning my car battery died and I used my insurance provided roadside assistance to get a jump and then drive to buy a new one.

      Bob,
      I never had to commute to work on the subway. I’ve always worked a short way from home. The school where I spent my whole career is only 4 miles from my house.

      I read The Boston Globe and The Cape Cod Times. On-line I read The Washington Post.

      When I’d take the subway to Boston, I’d give my seat to old ladies and pregnant women if no guys stood up. I have to laugh though as the last time I was on the T (Boston’s subway), someone gave me a seat. I guess I’ve reached that old lady stage.
