Flashback: Union Station in Los Angeles turned 75 years old over the weekend. The 1939 station cost $11 million and was designed by John and Donald Parkinson. Christopher Hawthorne writes: "While it is easy to think that [photographs of the station opening] depict some Golden Age of rail travel in Los Angeles, the truth is that the Golden Age of rail travel in Los Angeles is just getting underway." He continues: "Union Station ... wasn't advertising the importance of rail to 20th-century Los Angeles when it opened as much as mourning it. It was clear by that point that the private car and air travel represented the future." [Los Angeles Times]
