Additional Details:
Northwest corner of Chestnut and 9th Streets, a four-storied structure of stone, in Renaissance style of architecture, with a dome of iron. Its cost was $4,000,000. This building contains also the United States Courts and Federal offices. Philadelphia was the first city arranged on the now popular checkerboard plan; a few irregular avenues only, formerly country roads, deflect from the strict straight-away course.
