About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Eagle Down

Both of those eagles on the roof were moved and mounted at the entrance to the former State Museum, which was located in the former City Hall on Alabama and Ohio Streets.
In 2012, while they were hanging some silly Super Bowl banners, the crane hit one of the eagles and destroyed it. It has been replaced with a new one, but a piece of history was lost.

Neon Greyhound Dog Running

In case haven't seen what the old Greyhound neon signs looked like in action.

Running Greyhound

The running greyhound neon sign is real neat. I would like to have seen it at night.

Indianapolis Traction Terminal

The buses are resting in the shade of the Indianapolis Traction Terminal, built in 1904 and used by interurban electric railways until 1941. It was one of the largest terminal structures ever built specifically for interurbans.
