Day 120/366

The Grand Hall at St. Louis Union Station.

"From its magnificent 65-foot, barrel-vaulted ceiling in the Grand Hall to its Victorian-engineered train shed totaling more than 11 acres, St. Louis Union Station remains one of our nation's true architectural "gems." Built at a cost of $6.5 million in the 1890s St. Louis Union Station was designed by German-born architect Theodore C. Link of St. Louis who won the prized project in a nationwide contest. In the early 1980s , the Station underwent a $150 million restoration." An excerpt from http://www.stlouisunionstation.com/info/Architecture.cfm
