2018 Pictometry views of entire site; doesn't appear the building in the original post survived:
The Beautiful brick building of 1916 seems already to have changed its footprint by 1920 w/1920 Sanborn Insurance map.I am guessing but I think that WWI pre and after U.S. entry was a major boost to business as in Ballinger Company photo 1924. Many changes and alterations over the years. Neighborhood smelled wonderful during weekdays btw. We used to drive nearby over Tacony to an uncle's house at Tacony and Bridge, across from the Arsenal, now under I-95.
In your Quaker Bride photo, original building would seem to now be left in photo as a wing of the building that seems to match 1920 insurance map.

Saint Joachim's Church - Frankford - 1908
They built a hideous modern church to replace this and even that has been closed down.
I understand this old one burned down in 1981. This one also has a small graveyard btw. Was the only Catholic church in the region for some distance in its day in the late 19th century.
Titus. I never saw the inside but as for the outside, that is Award Winning "Hideous" for the outside considering what was there and the nature of the neighborhood. You go from an organ and a choir high mass and end up with a cheap guitar mass kind of thingy. Just saying.
Frankford Avenue Station - Philadelphia Rapid Transit Co. - Architect R. C. Heath - 1907
