About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Evansville Greyhound Station

Lauren- Thanx for the link of the Evansville Greyhound depot. It's great to see that it's been so well maintained and still in use as a bus station. The shots of Union Station in Cincinnati from the same site are spectacular as well.

Evansville, IN

The Greyhound bus station in my home town is still standing and in use.

Lost a link in the last post. Here's a color postcard of our late Greyhound terminal.

re: Handpainted Signs

They tore down the old Greyhound bus station in my home town also. Those old buildings had such character and style, it's such a shame they have to destroy them.

Handpainted Signs

More beautiful hand painted signage and lettering. Imperfect and as distinctive as your handwriting. And if you zoom in, one of the bus lines had service to my hometown of Ft. Wayne. Too bad they tore down the old art deco Greyhound bus station here several years ago.
