The Greyhound bus line, with its well-known logo of a leaping greyhound, has been around since before World War I and Greyhound buses were making regular trips from New York to California by the late 1920s, according to Wikipedia. The Greyhound line came to Glendale in the early 1930s. Two stations were listed in the city directory in 1934, one on East Broadway and another on South Glendale Avenue, said George Ellison of Glendale Public Library’s Special Collections. By 1952, when Lola Archer and her husband, Clifford, came to town to take over the Greyhound bus depot, the station was located at the northeast corner of Brand Boulevard and Colorado Street.
