Lovely Ornimentation

The King Street Train Station lobby has been transformed to reveal lovely ornamentation long hidden by a false ceiling. Above each doorway or archway there is large bronze signage to direct people confidently in the right direction. Plaster relief panels abundant with cornucopias of fruit surround portals which bleed light from one room into another.

Very nice ornamental. Hard to imagine it was once covered up.

I like the ornaments and the light. (By the way Kim, could you check your link at Mybloglog to this site. It was not working the moment I clicked, I guess they must have missed part of the adress or something)
