Do photographs tell stories?

Garry Winnogrand said that “photographs do not tell stories; they tell you what something looks like to a camera”. While I think that many times he is correct on this statement (at least in its most literal interpretation) I think the following picture DOES tell a story:

End of the line, Brunswick, ME

End or Beginning?, Brunswick, ME

The question is: what is the story?
