Mystery photo: Going on a bus trip

There are so many photos and snapshots out there in the wilderness that are detached from their original families. Most of them without IDs. I reckon that most of them end up in landfills. But a significant percentage of them end up in estate sales, flea markets, junk stores and the like. And a teeny-tiny percentage of them are documented on blogs such as this one.1

Today's slightly blurry photograph features an old couple who are just leaving on or arriving from a bus trip. We can only imagine where they went and how much they enjoyed their vacation. Perhaps they took the bus to go see family members across the country.

Nothing is written on the back of the snapshot. In the lower-right corner of the photo, "MAR 85" is printed. So the photo was either taken or developed in March 1985 — just over three decades ago.

As always, if anyone recognizes these two, I'd be happy to get the photo back to family members...

1. But I'm hardly the only one. Here are some other Found Photo Blogs, some of which are already themselves abandoned:

  1. Love finding old photos and imagining the stories behind them. Wouldn't it be cool if someone did recognize them? Would love to know where they were going!
