Los Angeles Union Station celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2014 — a nice milestone for the facility that Metro purchased in 2011. We’re digging through any archive we can find for historical photos and thought we would share a few today that date from the late 1930s through the station’s first decade.

The two gems in this bunch are the waitress in the Harvey House restaurant — perhaps at a front counter — and the image of Madame Chiang Kai-shek arriving at the station on March 31, 1943.
