Union Station ~~

Los Angeles Union Station is the main railway station in Los Angeles, California and the largest railroad passenger terminal in the Western United States. It was partially designed by John Parkinson and Donald B. Parkinson, who had also designed Los Angeles City Hall and other landmark Los Angeles buildings. The structure combines Art Deco, Mission Revival, and Streamline Moderne style, with architectural details such as eight-pointed stars, and even elements of Dutch Colonial Revival architecture. The ceiling in the waiting room has the appearance of wood, but is actually made of steel. Attached to the main building to the south is the station restaurant designed by the famed Southwestern architect Mary Colter.
