819 6th St.

The buildings on this block of Chinatown are flush together.  The door at 819 6th St. NW is at the edge of the property, with #817 abutting right up against the door frame.  The property was built in 1896 by the Mullett firm.  This firm was founded by Alfred Mullett, who had been the supervising architect for many Federal buildings, including the Old Executive Office Building.
