Detroit's second station.

This was the smaller, and in my mind more beautiful, of Detroit's two major railroad stations (the other being the now-infamous Michigan Central Depot). I vividly remember going through there with my parents in the predawn dark on the way to visiting my great-aunt around the mid-1960s. Alas, it was also one of the Motor City's many architectural losses, having been torn down in 1974.
