Railroad Stationsby Brian Solomon
Railroad stations are gateways to cities and towns, and, as such, they have been built as elaborately detailed showplaces, displaying the best a town or city has to offer. Author Brian Solomon, a writer, photographer, and train expert, has written an engrossing and beautifully illustrated architectural history of railroad stations, which includes such magnificent stations as London's St. Pancras and Euston stations, Windsor Station in Montreal, Philadelphia and Baltimore's Pennsylvania Stations, San Francisco's Southern Pacific Depot, the Gare d'Orsay in Paris, and Tokyo's Main Railroad Station. RAILROAD STATIONS offers not just a history of the station building but discusses how each place came to be built and the role each station has played in its community, from grand stations in the urban centers of the world to humbler ones in the small towns across North America. Color and black-and-white photographs. 10 1/2" by 12 1/14".
