This great vintage photograph from 1957 shows that things really haven't changed that much on the New York City subway, other than fashion. A packed train car filled with commuters during rush hour, with New Yorkers crammed all the way up to the door. My guess is that it's probably the end-of-day rush hour judging by the dead look in their eyes.
