These kinds of posters were usually hand-lettered, so they don't necessarily match standard typefaces. The serif font on No. 2 resembles Barnart Brothers & Spindler's Old Roman, while the sans on No. 3 is similar to Futura Bold Condensed.

It's been on my to-do list for a couple of years; Windsor Bold might be an acceptable substitute...

i hear ya, its a shame there is hardly any information about it... i also think Garamond Premier Pro - bold subhead, medium caption, & bold italic could work. thanks for your help!
