Vintage Snapshots: Leaving and Arriving – A Gallery Of Travelers

Labor Day weekend always reminds me of traveling, an idea that’s been fixed in my mind since my college days. However, most of my traveling was done by plane, the norm by the early ’90s. These images come from a time when that wasn’t generally the case, and I’ve no idea if these travelers are leaving or arriving. Or whether they’re going for business or pleasure. For all I know, they could be going to the airport to board a DC-8.

We can certainly imagine the backstories in these though, and I’ve done enough moving and traveling by land to admire the neatness of some of these travelers. Also, it’s nice to see those trunks put to good use.
