Photographer's Note

Galle Railway Station located in the southern city of Galle in Sri Lanka. Owned by Sri Lanka Railways, the state-run railway operator, and is part of the Coast Line, which links Sri Lanka's south coast with the Colombo.

Galle station is an example of Modernism. The station conforms to the International Style, and uses concrete massing to create a geometric form. The portion of the building that houses the platforms is of a different, more utilitarian design. This features a metal structure that only covers the platforms, but not the trains.

Above the train we can see St. Mary's Cathedral.
