Magnolia Mobil Service Station

The service station was one of the few businesses in the immediate neighborhood and had a pay telephone on site. During the early days of the desegregation crisis, when reporters from all over the state, nation, and world converged on Little Rock, many phoned in their reports from the station. The press included a number of local and international reporters from magazines and newspapers such as The New York Times, Life, Look, Arkansas Gazette, Arkansas Democrat, Arkansas State Press, Der Spiegel (a German Periodical), Chicago Defender, and Baltimore Afro-American.
In the 1950s, television was entering mainstream America as a medium for news, and the events in Little Rock were among the first major news events to be televised. Reporters representing the major networks featured live footage of the events as Arkansas National Guard troops, on orders of the governor, kept nine African American teenagers out of the school.
