William Bradley, author of “Los Angeles Union Station: Tracks to the Future,” will speak at the Architecture&Beyond Lecture Series, Thursday, Sept. 18, 6:45-7:45 p.m. at the Los Feliz Library, 1874 Hillhurst Ave.
Bradley will discuss the rich history of visionary civic leaders, cultural relocation and financial woes that culminated with the creation of the last great train station built in the U.S. The grand and mostly Mission Revival terminal marked its 75th anniversary this past May. The author will not only provide the back story of Union Station with its iconic architecture, but stories about those famous trains that rode the tracks from 1939 to the present.
Skylight Books will have copies of Bradley’s book for purchase and signing.
The free lectures, now in its 11th year, are supported by the Friends of the Los Feliz Library and merchants of the Los Feliz BID.
