    Great looking building - I wonder who the architect was.

    If I had to take a wild guess, I'd say Philip H. Johnson, not to be confused with the world-renown Philip Johnson. Although his bio mentions his work for the City Health Department, Johnson also designed Convention Hall, City Hall Annex and numerous fire stations in the city. I have no good information to back that up, but he was active during the time the Frankford line was built.
