~ART DECO~

Newer Older

"I've always loved this beautiful blue Art Deco style building in downtown Jackson. It was
originally the Greyhound Bus Station, built in 1937-38. Art Deco remained very popular
throughout the WW II Era."

"Busses no longer come & go from here.......it's now home to a successful Architectural firm.
It does my heart good to see great pieces of architecture, like this, so well cared for and still
being used and enjoyed! Isn't it wonderful?"

    Great to see this type of beautiful building preserved. It always make me sad to see them in disrepair or worse torn down.

    What a beautiful shot of one of Jackson's most interesting buildings! I'm so glad that Mr. Adams restored this so carefully!

    It's a beautiful building, and how great that the current occupants clearly look after it well. Great lines and colour!

    Great capture Mary Lou and I agree with you I love to see old buildings restored to their former glory especially when they keep the originality seeing them as they where when they where first built :) :)

    Looks like it's in great shape. Judging from the sign out front, there must be some funds to maintain it.

    Great find and shot! Boy, does this bring back memories (1000+ miles on a greyhound bus is NOT fun).

    fantastic.....hopefully this is registered with a landmark association of national registry of historic buildings so it is never torn down to make room for something "better"

    One of the MOST lovely Greyhound depot's I've seen! Can you imagine what the buses looked like pulling out of this splendid place? There once was a time in America where detail, grandeur and grace abbounded in architecture... The use of rich and light colors, glass, tile and other materials of the era combined with streamline/deco design produced lovely buildings with even lovelier interiors... Sad to say that a good deal of the structures that survive rarely retain the original interiors.. which is a shame.

    Lovely photo, glad to see more deco buildings! Love'em!

    Wonderful building and beautifully maintained. We still have some houses in this area that are Art Deco. Lovely to see them still.
