That's great... They totally make Greyhound out to be something other than the red-eyed 8-hour ordeal required to get me home from college! ^_^

Incidentally, thank you for this blog! I have very little idea as to why, being a Canadian, I'm so fascinated by Americana, but this journal fits the bill nicely!

Why can't new advertisements look as great as this? Would consider hopping on a bus if it looked as adventurous as this.

Yes, riding the bus looks like something you'd really want to do! Love the illustrations, a friend recently bought some Saturday Evening Posts from the war years (WW2 that is) and there are amazing illustrations on nearly every page.
