The Ticketing Concourse at Los Angeles Union Station (originally the Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal), with a Christmas wreath over the arched doorway. Passengers originally bought tickets from agents at one of a series of windows. Today, those who haven’t bought their tickets on-line can buy them at much smaller booths and self-service kiosks inside the station. No longer needed for its original purpose, this opulent hall is closed to the public. It’s a “location” for advertising and movie shoots, and also a venue for weddings and other private functions. This view shows the geometric floor inlay work typical of public buildings in the Art Deco style.
