Emerald Isle Font I.D

Matthew Nicoll's picture

Hey, I'd be grateful if anyone could identify the font for the text "Emerald Isle"
Found Here:

Also if anyone can identify "The Best Ship Loading!" font as well. In fact if anyone knows who made these fonts back in the 19th Century, I'd be very interested.

It is most likely a wooden typeface that hasn't been digitized. Vintage Gothic is almost the sans version of it.

BEST SHIP LOADING is probably a Hellenic Wide or Antique Extended. Best version I know is Jason Walcott's but there are also variations by Nathan Williams (58 Rodeo) and Erik van Blokland (FF Zapata.

I see, thank you. Is there anyway to find out which wooden typeface or is it lost in time?

Quite similar, but heavier, is Jordan Davies' Antique Tuscan Condensed Bold.
