Happy Birthday, Union Station!

Winnipeg Union Station

VIA Rail's Union Station in downtown Winnipeg is 100 years old. I'm a little late with this, because the first train arrived at the station on August 7, 1911. Its official opening was June 24, 1912 so there is a bit of time before the "real" opening.

I'm embarrassed to say that I don't have a good external shot of the station, so these interior shots I took today will have to do for now.

Thank you very much for the mention! I'm the son of a retired VIA employee, so Union Station is really a sentimental favourite of mine.
