The Cincinnati Union Terminal is a passenger railroad station. Cincinnati was a major centre of railroad traffic but that traffic was split over five stations. A decision was taken in 1928 to construct a union station. The principle architects were Alfred T Fellheimer and Steward Wagner. However, architects Paul Philippe Cret and Roland Wank were brought in as design consultants and Cret is credited with the building's art deco style. It features the largest semi-dome in the western hemisphere measuring 180ft wide and 106ft high.

Amtrak abandoned the station in 1971. In 1973 it was designated a historic landmark. It lay vacant for the next couple of decades before being saved and restored by the people of Cincinnati. The building is now home to a much reduced passenger rail terminal as well as museums, theatres and a library. Cincinnati Union Terminal was voted the 46th most popular architectural work in America in a 2007 American Institute of Architects poll. Our architectural sculpture is of the fabulous art deco entrance facade.

Each of our architectural sculptures is handmade in our studio in Sussex, England. They are made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth, cool feel. The window frames are made of etched brass. Stylish ornaments, gifts or presents that are handmade in Britain and fabulous on a desk, shelf or wall.

Address: Cincinnati Union Terminal, 1301 Western Avenue, Cincinnati, OH 45203, United States.
