Long Description:
A most impressive feature of the Grand Hall is the "Allegorical Window," a hand-made stained glass window with hand-cut Tiffany glass strategically positioned above the Station's main entryway. The window features three women representing the main U.S. train stations during the 1890s -- New York, St. Louis and San Francisco.

St. Louis Union Station was the world's largest and busiest passenger rail terminal when it was completed in 1894. Today, it is a preserved reminder of St. Louis' past as one of the country's major transportation centers. Note architect Theodore Link's use of light as a decorative tool in the magnificent Grand Hall. The breathtaking barrel-vaulted ceiling is actually suspended over the hall and the stained glass is original. Of particular interest is the allegorical window above the entrance to the Grand Hall which depicts the cities of New York and San Francisco as goddesses looking toward St. Louis, who stares serenely ahead, sure of her exalted place in the world. Take time to explore the station's 120 shops and restaurants. (visit link)
