Today’s Top 5

Ah, Esther!

She's always great.

Deja vu...

Recently, flying home non-stop from Boston to San Francisco...
It felt exactly like we remember being treated as a Bus Passenger in the 1960's!

It's very film noirish...

in a dark, sort of gloomy way. A bus station in a dark, gritty downtown terminal.
You can almost smell it.

Not in Columbus

The bus may be Columbus bound but that big hotel in the background is the old Fort Pitt Hotel in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

[Thankyou! - Dave]

Fort Hayes Hotel

Looking at the sign on the building behind, that may be the Fort Hayes Hotel which is long gone.
