Cincinnati Union Terminal was designed by Alfred Fellheimer and Steward Wagner, with design consultant Paul Phillipe Cret being responsible for the dramatic Art Deco aesthetic inside and out. Ground was broken in 1929 just before the stock market crash, and the facility opened in 1933.

Manhattan by Matte Stephens
Matte Stephens is sort of the love child of Georges Damin and Mark Coomer, with a hint of Nicholas Takis and a touch of Jim Flora in the mix, sprinkled with a garnish of early Charley Harper. His gouache paintings are very much rooted in the forms and colors of the middle of the 20th century, and I especially like his scenes of different cities.
