A crowd gathers outside Union Station Oct. 12, 1948 waiting to greet New York Governor Thomas E. Dewey, the Republican nominee for president. The downtown train station was located at what is now the corner of East Main Street and Martin Luther King Boulevard. It  was demolished for a parking garage in 1960. Dewey would go on to lose to the incumbent President, Harry S. Truman, in one of the greatest upsets in presidential election history. Herald-Leader Archive Photo
