We have two main old train stations here in Toronto, one is still operable and the other has been converted for other purposes. First the big Union Station downtown. It is the busiest transportation hub in Canada, serving over 250,000 passengers a day. Construction on it began 101 years ago. All photos are mine:
















In the summer months an extremely popular food market is set up outside on
the piazza:



























Inside the Great Hall:





The other was built 100 years ago, also in Beaux Arts style, and the clock tower was modelled after the Campanile di San Marco in Saint Mark’s Square in Venice. It is now the largest liquor store in Canada, at nearly 2000 square metres:

Buenos Aires

In Buenos Aires, Argentina we have two main/central stations, yet I think this is the one that is the nicest looking. However it is located at one of the worst neighborhoods in the city.

Are the photos your own? If not you have to credit them all to the source or they will be removed. That station is gorgeous! Also, please downsize photos posted. Thanks!
