D.C.'s Greyhound station is easily visible from the NoMa Metro stop, but the city's buses used to leave from another spot on New York Avenue. While we were unable to find an exact date on the postcard, members of the Old Time D.C. Facebook group have informed us that 1100 New York Avenue NW was the Greyhound station as early as the 1950s and was a sad gray facade by the 1980s. Today it's an office building, but the distinctive architecture remains and so, apparently, does the Greyhound dog on the building's floor.
