Victorian Calligraphic font - Guys Hospital London Exhibition

Saw this at a mini exhibition they have at Guy's this morning. Was impressed by the clarity and style of the titling. Anyone help me identify? Do a lot of work for heritage places and thought it could come in handy.

Cheers

Really? I can see the M and U are exactly the same. Realise its been tinkered with in Illustrator - suppose he could have copied his own and re-sized.

Dorian, I can see why you'd say that. The M's are very similar at first glance. But if you look closely, you'll see the two M's are quite different in small details -- details which aren't the result of an Ilustrator resize or skew.
