Correction!

While we were writing our last post about the Coxwell Barns, we were also munching on Red Rocket cookies and listening in on other coffee shop banter which resulted in a slight error. Luckily, you are all forgiving readers, right?? And since we gathered this information from brilliant local historian Stephen Wickens, we needed to set things in order. 

The Coxwell Barns was not converted into a bus terminal until the mid-1960s, when the subway was built. This photo from 1971 shows the impact of the Coxwell subway station and the pretty little buses all lined up in one small corner of the enormous concrete pad around the building.
