Richmond (Va.). Dept. of Planning and Community Development
Original Description (From Book)
Originally the Mechanics Bank, the office of the Southern Aid Society is housed in a building of considerable distinction. Stylistically, there are suggestions of Romanesque and Italianate motifs, but the building is a fine combination of elements with stone windows on the first level and high arched windows above.
Original Note (From Book)
The Two Hundred Block of East Clay Street contains several exceptionally interesting houses which are unlike any others in Jackson Ward.
