It's light years ahead of Akzidenz Grotesk (not to mention Helvetica) which only appeared 5 years earlier.

You mean Franklin Gothic appeared 50 years before Arials dad, right?

Yes. I guess that grammar is a little loose.

What do you mean by "ahead of"? F.G. feels well and truly date-stamped to me

Wow, Russell. To me it looks like it could have came out yesterday. I always assumed it was created in the late 1950's sans craze, along with Helvetica and Universe, etc. But, nope. 1902.
