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.
The Delgado features retail store-fronts at street level like Choux Cake Studio- known for its cakes and cup cakes, and apartments above. It was constructed for Shefftall's mother-in-law, Delores Delgado.
