Especially with those alien eyes watching!

Is that 30th Street?

Nothin’ says lovin’ like anti-bird spikes. Pretty sweet iron work though.

What is this public transportation of which you speak? Yes, I’m from San Diego.

“Anti-bird spikes??” NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

yeppers, it is the SEPTA platform at 30th street station.
the spikes are there to keep the pigeons from roosting and pooping on the passengers. as are the alien eyes.
30th street station was built in the early 1930s and it was from here that president obama began his train ride to DC last saturday. 30th street station also is the second busiest amtrak station on the northeast corridor.
how do I know all this? I am seriously into trains and train travel. woo hoo!

Wha? Anti-bird spikes? I thought those were early steampunk decor. And the dangling head? It’s like some kind of gruesome warning to aliens!

Outside of air travel, I’m not public transportation savy, but don’t those skylight windows keep the birdies out?

Beautiful photograph. I love the natural light and architecture 🙂

Where is Platform 9 3/4?
Half Assed Kitchen saysJanuary 25, 2009 at 11:35 am
Isn’t it great to be up early and going on an adventure? I love early morning AIRPORTS too. As long as I haven’t been flying all night.

Skylights notwithstanding, I’d assume birds get in via the platforms or loading docks that are open a lot. Our local grocery store has barn swallows up in the beams…cute, but it’s a FOOD store. Yergh.
Fantastic shot, Bossy!
