Great Temple of Travel: A Pictorial History of Birmingham Terminal Station: 1909 - 1969
Stock #: KB11121
Author: Marvin Clemons

List Price: $59.00
Karen's Price: $49.95

Terminal Station, demolished in 1969, is an often mourned and sorely missed architectural relic for residents of Birmingham, Ala., who recall tales of the terminal’s heydey. Designed by Atlanta architect P. Thorton Marye, the Beaux-Arts brick structure was constructed in 1909 and cost nearly $3 million at the time—which currently translates to approximately $78 million. A former, buzzing hub of Southern rail travel, the station was torn down following the decline of train travel.

In this first pictorial history of Birmingham's celebrated Terminal Station, extensive documentation and assembled scores of photographs have been gathered to produce a detailed and richly illustrated account of what was once hailed as the "Great Temple of Travel".  For those who remembered Terminal Station, Great Temple of Travel will bring back cherished memories. For those who missed the experience, it will provide a window into a bygone era of grand railroad stations and their colorful passenger trains. Black & white photos, sepiatones and color photos, including postcards images and drawings. Hard cover.

nsive documentation and assembled scores of photographs and illustrations as a tribute to the once "great temple of travel."

The Wheeling & Lake Erie is a familiar railroad name with its history dating to 1871 in providing transportation throughout the State of Ohio. Reaching from the northwest corner at Toledo, the W&LE ran southeast through Brewster, where it branched off in several directions. Just East of Brewster at Harmon, branches radiated northerly to Cleveland and southernly to Zanesville, with it main track continuing eastward towards the Ohio River at Warrenton where it turned north towards Mingo Junction and Steubenville, or south to its terminus at Martins Ferry. At Pittsburgh Junction, not quite 50 miles east of Brewster, was Wheeling & Lake Erie's ever important connection with the Pittsburgh & West Virginia Railway and the "Alphabet Route" with its fast freight time sensitive freight service.

Today the Wheeling & Lake Erie entered into a partnership with regionals Allegheny Valley and Buffalo & Pittsburgh Railroads by offering a new version of the "Alphabet Route". Hard cover.
