The terra cotta and marble floors of Union Station have been pounded and punctured by the heels of many a dreamer. For those who ventured across the country, this cultural-historic monument built in 1939 marked the beginning of the real journey. For others it marked the end... It was a more formal and refined time, when people dressed up to travel. Although it was not practical, it certainly was elegant...
Union Station was designed by The Parkinsons on the original site of Chinatown. Known as the "last great railway station" in America it is an eclectic blend of Dutch Colonial Revival architecture, Mission Revival, and Streamline Moderne.

Some liquid courage might have been the very thing before they embarked on their journey...
How energized they must have felt as they exited this station with their whole new life ahead of them...
LA even LOOKED promising. How could something so pretty harm you...?
