Cocke,Bowman & York

Stephen Fox wrote about this Harlingen building during a recent lecture for the LRGV-AIA

 Harlingen, 1951, Cocke, Bowman & York

An example of Cocke, Bowman & York’s ingenious pragmatism is the Clarke & Courts Building in downtown Harlingen of 1951. Rather than conventional brick-framed display windows, the street front of the building became a single display window, shaded from the southern sun by an aluminum outrigger brise-soleil that also shaded the sidewalk in front of the building.
