Though I’ve never studied architecture or usually take notice of such things, I know something cool when I see it, like this old Greyhound station on main street in Jackson, Tennessee. From what I could gather from locals, it’s one of two in the country to have retained its original art deco design and is still fully operating. A few calls around town and random Internet browsing place that other at anyone’s guess. When I strolled over to check this one out, along with the design it didn’t seem like much else had changed.
Though you can buy fares online or by phone, a line snaked from the ticket booth with folks who preferred to make their purchases face-to-face. A bus pulled in and a few fanning women with coifed hair and high heels clicked across the tile floor to refresh themselves before reaching their final destination. Outside, next to a pay phone, three old men sat on a bench intermittently filling silence with stories they’d likely told before, seemingly content watching time pass right by.
