I'm always in favor of reusing Houston's old buildings rather than tearing them down. There have been some sad passings of great old buildings recently, but more and more people are repurposing. This was
once Houston Fire Department Station 3 in the Old First Ward neighborhood along Houston Avenue. You can imagine the old engines coming out of those two bays in the front. I love all the little concrete and plaster embellishments and the fine old brick. The remodeling left it very much intact. Not sure if it has become a business or residence, but I'm glad it was saved.
