The Delgado Building, 2544 Oak Street, a mixed-use Prairie-style building constructed in 1919 in the Riverside neighborhood. Earl Mark and Leeroy Sheftall collaborated on several memorable Prairie-style buildings in Jacksonville's historic neighborhoods. Both men apprenticed in the office of Henry John Klutho, one of Florida's greatest architects, who came to Jacksonville following the great fire of 1901. Mark and Sheftall started their own firm in 1911 and were in partnership for twenty-two years.

This is now the Frances Court condominiums. It is an eighteen unit apartment building and appears well-kept. Despite replacement windows and doors that are not true to the 1920's period this is still an interesting building that invites further inspection.
Note the "FC" for Frances Court above the doorway. A closer view of this detail can be seen below:
And here, on the sidewalk leading up to Frances Court, the mark of the architects:
