sorry for posting an image with real zebraskin... and i hope i will not offend any anti-furists or animalcaring persons..

but if you could check up in the left corner at the letters M in MISS MAY

what font is it?

and Yves... you can throw away the image when it has been nailed... (No... not pinned-up!)

it is late here in Europe.. so i did not want to start up any applications and tidy things up!

Looks a lot like Univers Ultra Condensed, though the S here is a little more rounded. Possible it lost some of that roundness in the digitization?

Or perhaps the S just looks rounder here because of the nearby curves? ;)

Good call, Waffle.

I think you are right Yves, this looks like the old News Gothic Extra Condensed by ATF (sample)
or Jefferson Gothic, scroll down a little for more info in the Gerald Giampa site.

the image is from BOYPLAY of the year 1954.. so it could not have been digitalized..

Hmmm... Looks more like an American Gothic to me, not European.
