If you Travel by Train to or From Seattle

. . . this newly restored lobby at King Street Station will greet you. (Best viewed large or full screen: click photo, click All Sizes, click large or original). The pillars had been stripped of their marble and a false ceiling put in place. It's all been put right now and the gloom is gone, highlighting the lovely old mosaic compass rose floor and gorgeous plaster wall ornaments surrounding upper portals which bring light into other rooms. People can be seen waiting in the departure area which doesn't appear to have been restored yet. More of this grand old station's details tomorrow. Have a lovely Sunday!

If you would care to support SDP with your vote in Metroblogging Seattle's poll, please see yesterday's entry below for the quick link, and thanks to everyone for their kind interest.

I love train stations! They did a great job!

That is a great looking station, ours - being a small town - is nothing special.
It is a pity nobody is doing a Bristol DPB as the station there is one of Isambard Kingdom Brunel's wonders.

Sorry Kim...someone likes to take cheap shots!

I covered the Bristol station brilliantly if you ask ME!
