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.

Doing the Running Joke about Philly back when. Looks like the Railroad Ferry headed across Hudson to Exchange Place P.R.R. Ferry terminal in Jersey City in image background for a connection to Philly by rail from NYC. No direct overland train service between Philadelphia and NYC until 1910 and the opening of Pennsylvania Station with the train tunnel connecting Philadelphia train service with NYC and New England.
