Broad Street Station - March 1975

Richmond's Broad Street Station (originally Union Station) in March of 1975, eight months before it closed. The building opened in 1919, and ran passenger trains consistently up until it's closing. Less than a year after this picture was taken, the Science Museum of Virginia began moving into the building, and has occupied it ever since. Other than being a little dirtier, it doesn't look a whole lot different than today, with the exception of the Amtrak Rail Passenger Station sign on the left.
