this is from a 40's print publication so the hand setting is the culprit behind the "hot mess kerning"

Edinburgh Civic Survey (1949)
Prepared by Patrick Abercrombie and Derek Plumstead for the Town Council, the book contains detailed data for traffic, health, education, recreation, population density and so on, beautifully depicted in a series of maps, charts and diagrams.
