Jerome,Beautiful! It is so sad that most architects today can only the think in straight, sharp, shiny lines. The Antwerp stations stands as testament that at one time man “cared” about beauty as function, how terrible we have lost that. Thanks for sharing this most remarkable building. – gary
Oh jerome, your photos are so lovely. I would also have been compelled to photograph such a lovely station...so many lovely details for the eye to find...and with the sunset..aaaah, just gorgeous.
Lovely photographs of a stunning piece of srchitecture. I love the blue cast to the images. This reminds me of the City Hall of Philadelphia and the Old Executive Office Building next to the White House, both of whch are similarly massive stone buildings and were also built in High Second Empire style. I don't know whether it is true or not, but they supposedly remain standing today because when confronted with the costs to tear them down and replace them, those respoasible for making such decisions decided it was far cheaper to keep them.

What a nice view to have from one's window. The building is beautiful, we only see beautiful detail on old buildings since since new ones are mostly steel and glass. Best wishes.
LOVE those beautiful pictures!!!! Youre so lucky to be traveling! :D Hugs,
Beautiful architecture, the cost of which would be prohibitive to build today.Apologies for not leaving comments for quite some time. I'm still reading your delightful posts, but I'm limiting my time on the computer, and thus tend not to be leaving comments, in desperation of trying to improve my time management. Hopefully life will resume a comfortable rhythm soon so I can leave comments more regularly. Best wishes for a safe and relaxing Easter.
Seems you are busy with work. Best wishes.
