Format: Hardcover
Union Terminal in Cincinnati, Ohio is one of the finest examples of Art Deco architecture in the United States. After flirting with demolition and neglect for years Union Terminal gained a new lease on life when the Cincinnati Museum of Natural History and Science relocated there several decades ago. It is also home to an Omnimax theater as well as the Cincinnati Railroad Club...the publishers of this book. This delightful book details the need to consolidate Cincy's numerous rail terminals to one location, and discusses in depth the design and construction of Union Terminal. Also presented are the ancillary projects that were part of the total effort including construction of the Western Hills viaduct, maintenance and repair facilities, and a locomotive roundhouse.
The book is profusely illustrated with crisp sepia-toned photos taken during and after construction, as well as a set of color plates showing the beautiful murals that lined the main concourse. The concourse is the only part of the structure that no longer exists. Except for one large mural at the terminus of the concourse all other murals were removed to the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky Int'l Airport. This book is available through Amazon sellers, as well as (at least as of this writing) the Cincinnati Railroad Club. If you are a railfan, or a lover of Art Deco this book will not disappoint you. It is excellent!!
