Up the Canal

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 3 March 2011 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Oh, to be a child again...This would be one heck of a slide down those brass railings!

View up the "coffered ceiling-covered" staircase from the Great Hall of Union Station in Chicago to Canal Street and the CTA buses.
