    This is Engravers Old English, easily recognizable by the dangling ‘h’ descender which it shares with the more delicate Wedding Text/Mariage. The shape of the circumflex accent suggests this is Bitstream’s digitization.

    La tipografia di ristoranti a Tropea, 1/2:
    One restaurant, three different typefaces.

    Not unlike with Volksbühne Berlin, the identity here is in the genre, rather than in one specific typeface.

    Another sign, another typeface from the Textura genre: This is Cloister Black. It can be easily told apart from the similar Old English by the spur to the left in ‘h’ (also present in ‘b’ and ‘k’).

    The sign above the entrance uses yet another broken script. Lucida Blackletter (1992) doesn’t belong to the same group as the others, though. With its more cursive forms, it can be described as a contemporary Bastarda. It is less hard to decipher than a Textura. However, this advantage is ruined by the unfortunate mounting/lighting which renders the letters almost illegible.
