The train stations, I suppose, became a social statement in the industrial age, when people looked back with pride on their history, and looked forward with confidence to an ever-improving future.

We seem to have lost some of that.

That is a glorious building, Bahadir.

England, London, there is one station which retains that kind of splendour ... St Pancras.
There is a horrid tendency to destroy great old buildings .... arcane monuments and museums to the function they represented ....

Train stations, bus stations, post offices ...

To replace those with glass and alumium.

So good to see that some of the great ones are surviving.
Thanks for posting this.
