Interior view of a ceramic tile contractor office at 505 Starr Street, Corpus Christi, Texas. Two men, one in a business suit, sit at a small desk with samples of tile displayed on the wall above them. The man seated on the right is Byron B. Beck. This business was located in City Hall, which was so large it rented spaces to local establishments. Note the makeshift arrangement for the tile display and the mock fireplace used for tiling demonstrations. The two tile samples on the desk are from the Franklin Tile Company.
