How old is this station?

It appears to date from the time when people put effort into their station, because that was the entry-point for most into their community.

The station opened 1916 and is as you can see beautiful. :-)

Nice shot Janse! I was in this station and took several photos of the same tiled murals. It is a very impressive lobby

When train stations were points of entry into a city, meant to impress! Now, just another pass through point!
