Art deco building signage from 1920s-30s Philippines

Hi guys, this has gotten me stumped and I thought I'd turn to the experts for some help. I would be happy with something that's just close and isn't exact, but that triangular capital A is something I've never seen before in a typeface like this.

The subject says it all: this is from a photo presumably taken in Manila some time before the building got damaged in a fire in 1931.

I'm hoping you could help me out! Thanks.

You may like to try Dogma (Bold) by Emigree or something like Linotype Marcu San which is somewhat closer to that triangular |A|

Much appreciated, fvilanakis! I'm also still digging around, hoping to find something closer. I'll also post my findings here if I discover anything.
