A little while ago, we showed you a map of how different Center City Philadelphia might have looked had so many of Frank Furness' uniquely beautiful works not been demolished - many of them shockingly soon after they were completed. Since then, we've learned heartening news of several Furness churches that have been saved from demolition, but several of you, in response to our request to help expand our map, have emailed to inform us of additional Furness treasures that are sadly long past saving. Here's the updated map, whose most recent entry, the John G. Johnson House on South Broad, once housed the core of early European works that now reside at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
