This image: Elnora Shearer (70, right) talks to a fellow passenger on the Cherokee Bend 50 bus from downtown Birmingham to Mountain Brook. Elnora says: ‘Its kind of like there has been a shrinkage. Over the past couple of years, we’re becoming less and less. We’re retiring, and younger people don’t want to do this. They don’t want to work in Mountain Brook.’ Birmingham, Alabama, USA. 2014 © #CarolynDrake/ #Magnumphotos.
