Art Deco Condensed Sans

Hi, I found this piece of lettering in a brazilian football stadium built in 1949. Now, I'd love to know whether this is original lettering or a specific typeface turned stone-cut sign.

I can't tell for sure whether this is from that same time period or if it was added later but the portuguese spelling is very antiquated so it seems to be from around that time, if this information helps.

Thanks in advance!

It seems a common style in Brazilian stadiums of that era:

Hi Riccard0!

It's the same stadium, actually. Thanks for the link!
