OK, so it's a bus station! But what nice artwork on this poster commissioned by the Department of Heritage's Arkansas Historic Preservation Program. The poster, which shows the Greyhound Bus Station at 109 Fifth St. in Blytheville, celebrates the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act.  Mike Newton of Mangan Holcomb Partners was the artist.

The station, built circa 1937 in the Art Moderne style, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on Aug. 17, 1987, a press release from AHPP says. It is "the sole remaining example in the state of the Greyhound Company’s signature station design," the press release says.

The first 200 to request a poster will get one free. You can write to AHPP Posters, 323 Center St., Suite 1500, Little Rock, AR 72201, call 324-9880 or email info@arkansasheritage.org. Allow four to six weeks for delivery.
