Alexandria, Virginia’s Union Station #FlashbackFriday

Via The Library of Congress, here’s a look at Alexandria’s Union Station, which is located in the Upper King Street section of Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, from circa 1921. The station was built in the Federal Revival style.

The station is located at 110 Callahan Drive just below the George Washington Masonic Temple and directly across from the King Street – Old Town station of the Washington Metro. It is served by both Amtrak and Virginia Railway Express (VRE) commuter rail lines.

How does the station look like today? Here’s a more recent shot from a similar perspective.
