In Melbourne not too far from where i live is this monument to fallen soldiers from World War One.
I love the lettering. It makes be think of a unique version of Futura/Neutraface.
Here are some pics: http://www.flickr.com/photos/armorath/sets/72157612566497775/
Does anyone know the history of this sort of type?
As this sample is from 1925, and Australia, I assumed it was not inspired by Futura or Neutraface.
I find the wide A's in the names kind of weird, but i love the condensed W's.
**EDIT** I've attached some pics here, more on flickr.
