This view of Market Street is looking north from the bridge toward Alabama Ave. The Greyhound Bus station is the brick building on the left. This photo was taken at the beginning of the downtown renovation in early-mid 1970’s. During the project, buildings were cleared to make way for the Market Street improvements and the new Market Street bridge over Richland Creek. The old Arnold Motor brick building, having already been torn down at the time this photo was taken, used to be located to the left where these automobiles and the bus are shown. Today, the City of Dayton Police and Fire Departments occupy this space from Alabama Ave, south to Richland Creek. (Photo from the Wallace Rice Collection)

Nice post. I live off Idaho Avenue downtown and always enjoy learning more about what used to be nearby.

I remember the bus station. I also remember the
Chevrolet Dealership on the right. Thanks for posting.
