Sans-serif, narrow, geometric, extra condensed typeface used for the masthead of a 1945 American West Coast magazine. Scanned.

A sans-serif, condensed, narrow, geometrical typeface that seems to be based on a narrow vertical rectangle used as a grid with a 7:2 ratio, perhaps.
It was used for the masthead of an architectural magazine, in 1946. Reminded me of Wim Crouwel's Hiroshima poster (1957) and I wonder if that particular typeface was in turn based on other typographic/visual trends at the time. Thank you!


If you move the thread out of the “Solved” section up on the main Type ID Board, more people will see it.
