St. Mark’s: article in Church Standard (1901)

“The Churches of Washington and Vicinity.—V. The Pro-Cathedral Church of St. Mark, Washington City.” Church Standard 80 (6 April 1901): 829–30. [Google Books]

[Thanks to Maureen Shea for pointing out this article. Notice the houses standing to the left of the church in the first picture (presumably 305 and 307 A Street, SE). Both belonged to St. Mark’s and were later pulled down. That space is now occupied by the Parish Hall and the church parking lot.]
