Among Los Angeles landmarks, Union Station in downtown is certainly one of the most trafficked. Seen here in a photo taken by Times reader "kayone73," this transportation hub has seen plenty of travelers pass through since it opened in 1939.

The passenger station, in Spanish Colonial Revival and Art Deco style, is in the National Register of Historic Places and has been called one of the last great train stations built in America.

Besides a restaurant, newsstand and coffee shop, the station has featured several works of art throughout its grounds. If you're interested in learning more, the Los Angeles Conservancy offers a walking tour of Union Station on the third Saturday of each month.
