“Frank Furness: Architect Of The Industrial Age”

Beginning Modern at the right time In The Right Place

Speaker for the evening will be James Tevebaugh, AIA, President, Friends of the Furness Railroad District.  He will discuss Frank Furness and his work for the railroad.  Railroad development in the late 1800s provides an excellent description of the transition from Victorian to Modern design during the Industrial Era.  Furness designed 200 projects for the Reading, the B&O and the Pennsylvania railroads; the three largest US corporations at the time.  The work of Will Price was a continuation of the Furness influence.
