[A commercial building in Texas City]

Description: An unidentified two-story commercial building stands on the northwest corner of Texas Avenue and Third Street in Texas City. Line markers for parking places are visible in the foreground, so the building is in the business district, although the building on the left was a residence. Three identical signs are posted on the floor-to-ceiling ground floor windows on the left end of the building. To the left of the building, pipes and other materials lie on the ground near another two-story building. To the far right of the picture a sign reading "Frank's Taxi Service" hangs on the side of another building that was once a pawn shop. A car is driving down the street.
