A new print is available: Union Station: Los Angeles

Watching reruns of the old Perry Mason series I remember the seats in the lobby of Union Station where the drama unfolded. They are still there in the depot so I took advantage of the opportunity to sit in one and take in the area so often captured in the series. I noticed the covers on things like electrical panels were uniquely designed to complement the art deco decor of the station while obscuring what it was it was covering. They could have gone the easy route and put up a utilitarian metal grid as is often done in modern day design. I'm glad they didn't.
