Inspiration of the Day - 9/23/11

Cincinnati, Ohio - (BTT) Completed in 1933 by architects Alfred T. Fellheimer and Steward Wagner (with a little guidance from Paul Cret), this iconic Art Deco train station very nearly suffered the same unfortunate fate as New York's Penn Station before being declared a historic landmark, but not before the bulldozers had already razed most of the train concourse. Thanks in large part to the efforts of Jerry Springer (yes, the one you are thinking of - he was once the mayor of Cincinnati after all), the building is now enjoying a new life as a museum, inspiring lovers of culture (and comics) for many years to come.
