Wow, Look at Those Curves

Welcome to the 49th History & Home Link Party – it’s been nearly a year!  Thanks to all of you who join in each week!

I’m sharing a  bit of history with you this week, but only a glimpse.  Remember a while back when I wrote Art Deco Department Store Finds a New Purpose in a New Century?  I never did show y’all the cool, curvalicious mid century building around the corner from the Tapp’s Department Store, so I thought I’d show you finally.

mid century building

I’m not sure what it was, or what it is, but one of these days I need to get back over there and find out!

UPDATE: My sweet blogging friend Donna, from Distressed Donna Downhome let me know that this was the Greyhound Bus Station!  She sent me this link to an article with lots of great info on this building, in case you’re interested.  Thanks, Donna!

Now it’s my blogging friends’ time to share what they’ve been up to!

  1. I LOVE everything Art Deco – what a gorgeous building, Dawn. Thank you for the feature of the Alexandria treasures. It’s always fun to share, and thank you for hosting. I have a couple this week – one is history, the other home. Have a great week!

  2. The building is the old bus station. I think it was a Greyhound station, but i may be wrong. Yes, I am old enough to remember waiting for someone to arrive on the bus. It was quite the fight to keep it from being demolished. Thanks for hosting. I LOVE Rita’s tour of the apothecary.

  3. Thank you for hosting Dawn. I think that is a an old bus station. I seem to remember going to one back in the sixties with the Greyhound sign in the front.
