Has anything like the 'Metropolitan Tabernacle' typeface been digitized? Or can you identify the style? I'm especially inserested in the decorative capitals, even if it's just images.

(Source is a collection of Sword & Trowel magazine editions, printed 1889. Viewable here: The large image I attached is page 397.)

Incredibly fast. And accurate, of course. Thank you!

If you don't mind, how about the 'Office and Depot' type on the bottom of the page I attached?
