On March 5, 2021, I filmed the interior of the Spanish Colonial Revival/Art Deco ticket lobby of The Historic Los Angeles Union Station. This film also includes photographs of the exterior of the station-built in 1939, and the Metro Hall murals and skylight. This was filmed on my March 4-6 vacation.
History Jacksonville explores the amazing history of old Union Station (now the Prime Osborn Convention Center) and it’s predecessor Flagler (Union) Depot. George Farrar presents a people’s history of the station & photographs of the station, railyard and trains during it’s heyday, of the abandonment in the 1970s and it’s rebirth as a convention center.
Today on The Left Turn I discuss Jacksonville's historic old Union Terminal which served as the railway station for Jacksonville from 1919-1974, and is now our Convention Center. Towards the end of this special is a set of pictures. One includes the outer facade of Union Depot, built between 1895-1897.
