Depots, Stations & Terminals by Brian Solomon. From the railways beginnings, the station building itself had greater civic importance than ordinary structures, and this book shows you how beautifully it filled that role. Included are some of the finest, most interesting and famous railway stations with contemporary photographs, historic images and postcard views. Mr. Solomon, one of the most accomplished railway historians, leads you through a one-of-a-kind exploration of the history of these buildings where you’ll see some real architectural gems that dot the railroad landscape. It will inspire memories and daydreaming as you flip through the 176 pages packed full of photos.
