The Lindbergh Baby Poster Font

I was just looking threw an old infamous crimes book when I found this poster and was wondering what font was used?



There's some Franklin Gothic in there.

Yep, the smaller stuff is Franklin Gothic. The condensed face in the middle appears to be Alternate Gothic No. 1 and the face at the top is an old wood typeface. An old type catalog I have only gives it a number--735--no name.
