Go Greyhound, Los Angeles


“From this artfully lit 1939 night shot of the Greyhound bus depot at the corner 6th and Los Angeles Streets in downtown Los Angeles, it’s hard to see that it was on the edge of Skid Row. I can’t imagine many Skid Row buildings had an Art Deco bas relief sculpture carved into its façade. In this one shot we can see the bus depot, the Standard Oil gas station, and an elevated train line, so I’d imagine that this particular corner was busy virtually 24/7.”
