1912 Font for Sri Lanka Identity
0

Hi there, I'm looking for suggestions of interesting fonts which were designed in 1912 for the development of an identity for an old house in Sri Lanka (built in 1912) which I'm currently restoring. Any ideas appreciated, thanks.

It looks like Bernhard-Antiqua (Flinsch) and Bernhard Condensed (Bauer) were issued around 1912:
