Union Station, Washington DC, 1921

This photograph reminds me of the golden age of travel. Trains, plains and auto-mobiles. Many moons ago, travel was exciting and rather classy. There is little to like about current transport networks (other than that they’re functional, faster and more frequent and allegedly more comfortable – though certainly not in rush-hour).

And seating like they had then is so much more civilized than the horrid metal seats we have today. And at London stations there are nowhere near enough seats. In fact, there are hardly any.

  1. It looks like a museum! So much more beautiful than what the stations in Nueva Nueva look like nowadays [think a huge, dirrrty bathroom wiff shitty food stands everywhere instead of pisspotz].
