A lovely full bodied "Tuscsan" design where the strokes and terminals split into fishtails.
I believe I have an exact match on file but in the interim here is one that is close except the tilde shaped cross bars

Don't know if it's an original design but [[http://www.letterheadfonts.com/fonts/sinclair.php|Sinclair LHF]] by John Studden is a match.

Nice catch Ryuk. The sign is obviously based on Sinclair LHF. I knew I had seen this one before but couldn't put a name to it. Unfortunately John Studden often does not cite any sources that would help to place his fonts in context. The tilde, which seems to have been invented by a book cover letterer, Henry Thayler, puts it between about 1895 and 1915 when it was the height of fashion. The source for Sinclair LHF may have been show-card lettering or painted signage.
