Who built Boys' High School in Philadelphia

They used to build some beautiful schools for boys in Philadelphia. Apparently it got torn down at some point.

Central High School (Philadelphia): In September 1900, the school moved to its third location in a newer and larger building located at Broad, Green, Fifteenth, and Brandywine Streets. In 1939, Central moved from its location at Broad and Green to its fourth, current, location at Ogontz and Olney Avenues. The building left behind became the Benjamin Franklin High School. And this BF High School of today is.... well it's ugly - New Looks.
