The front facadeThis union terminal served in the 1930s to unite seven different railroad lines and five separate terminals. The train concourse was 450 feet long and the station could accomodate 216 trains daily. After rail traffic diminished and after several failed attempts to rescue the terminal, it became the Cincinnati Museum Center, incorporating several museums.
|The New York architects were assisted by Paul Cret and Roland Wank, who are credited with the arched half-dome and the Art Deco style.|
|The figures on the facade, representing Transportation and Industy, are by Maxfield Keck.|
