View from the Bridge

Car 101 is crossing over Main St. Bridge over Buffalo Bayou, just about to reach the northbound end of the line at UH-Downtown.  A portion of the downtown skyline is visible in this view.  The most prominent building in view is JP Morgan Chase Tower.  At 1002 feet it is the tallest in the city, and holds the current ranking of second highest office structure west of the Mississippi. 

The old building closer in and more or less beneath that tower bears a faded wall ad on its upper floors for Southern Pacific Lines.  Times indeed have changed.
