Alfândega Review

The Customs House in Manaus was built by the British in 1902 with bricks imported as ship ballast. It stands alongside the floating dock that was built at the same time to accommodate the annual 10-meter (32-foot) rise and fall of the river. It's now home to the regional office of the Brazilian tax department, and the interior is of little interest.
