I wonder if there's anyone who knows which font is used for this old Dutch transport company.
Or maybe it's custom painted.
The pictures are at least 40 -50 years old
Any help is welcome.
There are at least two different typefaces at work here, probably both hand-painted, especially the top one with its odd proportions. The bottom one bears some resemblance to Futura Display or my own Turista Gorda NF, but only some...
The SOESTERBERG lettering in the lower sample looks like Futura Stiele. Some of the other lettering looks like Berthold Block. Of course, anything that old could always be hand-lettered (or use decals made from hand-lettered originals).
