    In the city of Texarkana they built the US Post Office and Court House building straddling the state line.

    Texas to the left and Arkansas to the right, so I'll guess we see the south entrance there. Must be a kinda complicated courthouse, do they follow Texas law on the east side, and Arkansas law on the west side, and some federal law on both sides ?

    Thanks for the info Hoyt, think I'll now run soon for some US office, I'm in favor of justice according to all laws in all courts, not splitting that all up, I might call in Judge Judy for that.

    Maybe just dirty court houses. It wouldn't be nearly so ugly if it were clean.

    Bowie County Courthouse

    1891
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    ‘‘ The historic Bowie County courthouse, built in Boston, had an octagonal tower on the northwest corner of an otherwise, bi-laterally symmetrical plan. At some point the tower was removed, probably for structural reasons, as was often the case with 19th century courthouse towers in Texas. Or, it was hit by a tornado, the second greatest threat to these towers. By the way, those aren't birds on the central ridge of the roof. ’’

    So what's on the central ridge of the roof ?

    Random pic ? Or a court case coming up ? Does it fit under the viaduct ?
