Art Deco Delight; Cincinnati Union Terminal

In August 2011, I exposed this vertical (portrait oriented) interior view of the famous Cincinnati Union Terminal. The station is an architectural masterpiece designed by architects Fellheimer & Wagner.

I was visiting for the annual Summerail event (due to be held this year in Marion Ohio).

For this angle I used my Lumix LX3, which is a took well suited for making interior views with mixed lighting.

Cincinnati Union Terminal’s art deco styling lends well to semi-abstract images. I especially like the enormous flag, which helps anchor the photo while providing both perspective and context.

Cincinnati was inspired by one of my favorite Scandinavian railway terminals—also featured on Tracking the Light. Do you know which one?

If you would like to read more about classic railway stations, including details on Cincinnati Union Terminal, consider ordering my book Railway Depots, Stations & Terminals published by Voyageur Press and available through Amazon and local book dealers.
