I love to visit old train stations and one of my favorites is Union Station in Chicago. The character, design and aura of days gone by captivates me. As soon as I walk through the door, my imagination soars. There is amazing design and detail in every nook and cranny.
I see the wear on steps and imagine the people who have walked them. Close your eyes and you can almost hear the hustle and bustle of the travellers. I imagine the clothes they wore. Oh the clothes, when women wore gloves and men wore hats - swoon.
I imagine the craftsman who built this amazing piece of art and I bow down to them - metaphorically of course. Come follow me to the coolest place in Chicago and marvel at the beauty and design of Union Station...
I hope you enjoyed this magical place as much as I always do.
