This is what the Transatlantic Station in Cherbourg used to look like before World War II. Those damn Nazis destroyed much of what once used to be beautiful. Fortunately, the building has been restored although I guess none of us will ever get to see it with its original tower. The current building is now the Cité de la Mer dedicated to maritime history. It also has a huge aquarium featuring many kinds of fish. Large ships like the Cunard Queen Mary II and the Queen Elizabeth still dock here with tourists every year.
