This beautiful photographic survey of urban train station design covers a 100 year period from roughly 1850 to 1950. Striking original photographs chronicle forty large passenger station buildings still in existence in cities around the world. From the great terminals of London, across the world to Auckland, New Zealand; from Toronto's Union Station to the grand and crumbling Retiro station in Buenos Aires- vastly different architectural forms are displayed and presented chronologically. One-third of the stations included are among the best America has to offer.
