Always enjoyed these ads but was never sure what the font was.


Usually hand painted on these posters.

Even if I have to agree with Nick Cooke, I guess it would possible to find a decent alternative for this one, may be simply customizing /G (removing horizontal bar and adding a flare serif by slightly curving bottom right part).
Some suggestions Proxima Nova Black (mixing Regular, Condensed or Extra Condensed), Profile, Gibson Bold, http://Gotham (also mixing styles Regular, Narrow, Extra Narrow...), Polarband, TS Montreal or even a manipulated Futura Extra Bold (but you'd have to entirely redraw /G or to borrow it from one of the previous')
