Education
Marcus Clark & Co. were 'universal distributors', a large retail company with a mail order business. In 1906 their new building, described by them as 'our mammoth eight-storey building' was the tallest in Sydney. Today it is occupied by the State Rail Authority.
The eastern section of the building was built in 1910 and incorporated into the new building in 1924.
