I would go for E because it is precise and conveys the meaning.

B,C and D have grammatical errors and A seems to be too wordy.

The ideal cities of Ebenezer Howard, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Le Corbusier, although each differed from another, were all based on a belief that physical order in itself could bring about the good life.

I will go for 'A'

since there are more than 2 things we should be 'one another'

(A) different from one another as they were - correct
(B) different one from the other as they were - 'different from' is correct
(C) different from each other as every one was -'each other' refers to two
(D) differing as each was, one from the other - 'differ from' is correct
(E) although each differed from another - 'differ from one another' since two and more things are compared.

I was confused between A and E. B,C,D look grammatically incorrect. But then chose A since E skews the sentence a little.
