The suitability of the streamlining imagery to the world of travel would have been irresistible by the 1920's.
This image conjures up the age of industrial iron and glass...reminiscent of loud and smoky, damp and draughty Victorian train stations. The picturesque handiwork of moisture on limestone walls and the elegantly sculptured vine moulding above the arched window with metal quatrefoil mullions compensates.
A last look back at the great hall's opulence underlines the difference in mood.
Straight-forward stylized lettering. Steerhead motif? Thistles on the console.
A vaguely Egyptian motif in a side hall off the ramp down to the departure level. No other stylistic cousins in the place. I wonder what the story was here? A project for an apprentice?
