Some historic architectural details that look intentional weren’t necessarily part of a building’s original plan. A good example of this is the pair of eagles atop globes outside the entrance of Old City Hall in Indianapolis. While they look quite striking in their current home, they’re actually the only surviving remnants of the Indianapolis Traction Terminal train shed, a major interurban train station in downtown Indianapolis that functioned from 1904 to 1941.
