Los Angeles’ Union Station, completed in 1939, was designed by John and Donald Parkinson and brought together a variety of architectural styles ranging from Moorish to Mediterranean to the then-ultramodern Streamline Moderne. But when looking at the building’s exterior from a distance, none of those are quite as obvious as the “Spanish Colonial” or mission style architecture influence. The Getty has one of Carleton Watkins’ mission photographs so you can compare.

We’re teaming up with the Getty’s tumblr to bring you historic Los Angeles images on Wednesdays through August 6 as part of No Further West.
