New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
This is a font that flourished mostly around 1940, looking similar to contemporary Italian Art Deco poster lettering.
I think I saw it elsewhere when I was a kid, but nowadays I can only find this particular one in the façade of two buildings designed by the Chilean architect Juan Martínez Gutiérrez.

Common glyphs between both pictures: ACDEHILRSU.
The N letter has a different shape in each picture.
Also, the first one has V, while the second one has BGMOT.
The following is the awful result of me trying to reproduce the shapes of the letters.
The shape of the letters E, G, M, R, S (and the N in the second picture) are the most distinctive traits of this font.
In particular, the G looks odd, like a C with a downwards spur, resembling a sickle.
Please help me find a similar font to this one. A hard task, since there are thousands of Art Deco-like geometric fonts.
