Photo: Columns Union Station Architecture Downtown Toronto Ontario

A row of columns stand straight and tall at the entrance to Union Station in downtown Toronto in Ontairo, Canada. When someone approaches the station, the first things they see are these straight stone columns.

The columns at the entrance to Union Station in downtown Toronto can be seen from far away as they are so numerous and so tall that they cannot be missed when you are heading towards the station. The station is one of the finest examples of the Beaux-Arts style of architecture used in a railway station in Canada.

Union Station is the busiest station in Canada and is a major transport hub for the city that also connects to the rest of Canada and even parts of the United States. About 200,000 passengers pass through the station every day. This station was built between 1914 and 1920 and was designed by an architectural firm in Montreal.

These columns face out on to the Front Street entrance and when someone enters the station this way they go right in to the ticket lobby - this area is known as the 'Great Hall'. ... continue below the picture...

... The building is about 752 feet long and there are 22 stone columns that are each 40 feet high and each weigh about 75 tonnes. They are crafted out of Bedford Limestone, which gives them that very white and polished look as limestone has that natural look to it.
