Theme Day: Union Station

Union Station is the main train and bus station serving Hartford.  The building dates to the 1880s; it underwent a substantial renovation 20 years ago.  Along the way, it was given a huge and colorful tile mural by the late artist Cleve Gray.  The mural is 686 feet long . . . you see only a part.

The November theme for daily photo blogs is "public transportation."

I think the colorful mural is a nice addition. I've got the Amtrak up today!

I love the colors! A perfect cure for the dreary bus station.

Nice to see a bus station looking cheerful - round here they are often really dull and dirty places.

Wonderful tile-work here. Very attractive to the eye.

Great Theme Day post. Mine is up on November 1 at Portland Oregon Daily Photo; it’s a photo that I took on the Portland, Oregon, MAX Light Rail last Saturday.

Hartford Union Station is the ugliest Bus Station in the United States. Bar-none.
