Futura with an extra small x-height
0

I'm looking for a font that similar to Futura, but with a tiny x-height, similar to the attached, but obviously without the distortion of the uppercase and the numerals.

Failing that perhaps something lighter, with a more curved w, but still with the tiny x-height and the 1920s style. Can anyone recommend anything along those lines?

Some possibilities, but usually the numerals tend to be a little funky (some suggestions on tall numerals here: http://typophile.com/node/82379):

Have you considered Kabel?

Delayed response. Canterbury Sans looks pretty great. Thanks a lot. Might just stick with Futura (possibly lighter to match the weights) for the numerals though.
