Known as the “Last of The Great Railway Stations” built in the United States, the 1939 Los Angeles Union Station was designed by architects John Parkinson and Donald B. Parkinson with the help of a few other involved architects. This building replaced the older La Grande Station and Central Station making it the largest railroad passenger terminal in the Western United States. The building combines Mission Revival with Art Deco and Streamline Moderne architectural styles and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument.
Spectra Company performed materials restoration on many of the historic components of the station including the restoration of the ticket counters, bronze windows and replicating some of the damaged or missing original tile.
