Sorry, but what you posted are examples of hand lettering, not typesetting (look closely at the repeating letters—-they are not exact matches to one another, and you don't get that kind of variation in a metal typeface).

Most display type of that era was created by lettering artists, not typographers.


Tilda has a similar vibe.
