Brady’s Island bridge reflected in window

The building is located in Harrisburg, at the corner of Cypress and Frio, just off Broadway, on the mainland side of the bridge over to Brady’s Island.

The 8200 seems to refer to a Cypress St. address, but that doesn’t map exactly right and seems to belong to a nearby towing company.

The building was old and (if I remember correctly) unoccupied in the 1970s when I was working on a project nearby. For some reason I thought it was an old Customs building, but have had no luck with that identity.

The construction is reinforced concrete.
