    Cover for a Dixieland record by Stan Rubin & his Tigertown Five, recorded live at the Carnegie Hall on November 27, 1954, and released by RCA Victor in 1955.

    The typeface is Latin Bold Condensed, which is the only member of Stephenson Blake’s Latin series to feature an H with angled crossbar. In 1939, the Bold Condensed served as the basis for making the handtooled Chisel, but this specific letterform was not carried over.
