If you have never seen the mosaics from Cincinnati's Union Station, it's worth flying into the Greater Cinti Airport (which is in N. KY...don't ask) because the entry and concourses have these huge, fabulous images of Workers! The mosaics were relocated....

I found some good photographs — really beautiful. Maybe someday I’ll have a reason to go there. :)
