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.
