Hi,

Hope you're well.

Can anyone please identify the typeface used for "BOBBY & CO, LTD" in the attached poster.
It was made in 1924.

Thanks!

Gill Sans is close, but you might also want to look at the various forms of Johnston available; this kind of letterform was quite popular at the time that the poster was made...

One more in the same vein as suggested by oldnick: English Grotesque
BTW, the 3 last lines could be easily substitute with Mostra Nuova.
