Description
The New York Central System by Michael Leavy

When St. Louis' Union Station opened to the public in 1894, nearly 10,000 people gathered to celebrate.  What they saw rivaled famed stations in the East.  It sported barrel-vaulted ceiling, sweeping archways, and Tiffany stained-glass windows.  Modeled after the walled city of Carcassone, France, Union Station was one of the busiest in the world during its heyday.  Follow the history of this great architectural triumph from its original glory days through its demise and rebirth.  The glory days of rail transportation come to life in more than 200 historic images, from steam engines hissing into the 11-acre train shed, to the perky smiles of the renowned "Harvey Girls."  Union Station is also seen here as tens of thousands of passengers a day dwindled to mere hundreds.  As the automobile and airplane gained momentum in the 1950s and 60s, railroading lost popularity and St. Louis' Union Station fell into disrepair and eventually closed.  Now restored to its original splendor, Union Station is again a bustling center of activity.

Author Bio:    Seasoned St. Louis historians and scholars Richard Deposki and Albert Montesi add this historic tribute to their collection of other St. Louis area titles.     

Be aware that the accuracy of some of Arcadia’s home-spun histories is sometimes questionable. Hence, your NYCSHS directors would be interested in reviews by knowledgeable members. Published by Arcadia Publishing, this softcover retails for $22, with NYCSHS members paying only $17.60. Shipping is extra and Ohio residents must add 8% Ohio sales tax.
