H-Bomb’s Friday Photo, week 19: Nashville’s Union Station

To my fellow Americans: Happy National Margarita Day! And to everyone worldwide: I hope you’ve had a very happy Friday. I missed a week in this Friday photo series because I was on the road, visiting Nashville, Tennessee. But I’m back and better than ever! And this week’s featured image comes from Nashville. It’s a photo of that city’s Union Station:

Nashville Union Station

Opened in 1900, this Romanesque revival edifice originally served as a railroad terminal. Today it’s a luxury hotel (it calls itself the Union Station Hotel). The interior is reportedly quite ornate, featuring a lobby with a 65-foot barrel-vaulted ceiling and stained glass windows. (Regrettably, I didn’t have a chance to step inside; during my taxi ride to the airport at the conclusion of my visit to Nashville, I made a quick stop that only allowed me time to photograph the exterior.) The building was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1977.

This photo was taken last weekend. 🙂 I’ll have much more to say in the near future about my visit to the great state of Tennessee.

  1. That’s a pretty cool building. I was only in Nashville for one day and did not see much. Hope the trip was great!!!

  2. I ran the Nashville Rock N Roll Half Marathon a few years ago and was able to get a solid 13.1 miles of the city seen. Would definitely love to return and explore in a slightly more enjoyable way;-)

    • @Jess: That’s an interesting way to see the city (or any city). I recommend returning; there are some cool things to see in N-ville!
