Description
View of the Los Angeles Union Station with the Los Angeles City Hall and the Federal Building in the background.
The Los Angeles Union Station was designed by John Parkinson and Donald B. Parkinson in the mixture of Spanish Colonial, Mission Revival, and Streamline Modern styles. Opened in 1939, its official name was the Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal (LAUPT), until the Catellus Development later changed it to Los Angeles Union Station (LAUS). It was the last passenger terminal built in United States as a joint project by the Southern Pacific, Santa Fe, and Union Pacific railroads. Located across from the El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historic Park, the Los Angeles Union Station was designated a historic cultural monument in 1976.
