Public Transit Architecture - johntrueman

A fascinating display inside Washington Park MAX Station. This station is the deepest underground subway station in the western hemisphere (only Moscow and Pyongyang have deeper stations). Stretched out along both platforms is a glass tube containing one of several core samples drilled while this station was being planned. Interpretive displays on the wall give information on the age of the rock, its composition and origin.
