Celtic looking lettering style of a Maori prophet

Hi there, i'm researching the style of a particular lettering style of a Maori prophet (in New Zealand, obviously). The lettering stlye seems to be of some european inspiration... celtic, maybe? It looks quite familiar, but I can't quite pick it. It is quite inconsistent, but I recognise some character designs, and would appreciate if anyone could point me in the right direction for other source material.

Regards,

- Chris

The A’s are quite Basque/Celtic in style, these might help

I recently took this pictures which have a similar A, I don't have a date for the building, the windows look 1930s but I doubt they are original.

Edit: I meant to say the building is off Oxford Street in London
