Helloooo!

I really love the look of these letters, identifont suggested Schneidler EF (1936) as the closest match although it is not exact. I mean that S is pretty loopy.

As this is architecture from 1916, I am now having doubts... Is this even a font? (Alternatively, has someone made it into one?)

Thank you so much for your time!

Monotype and MIT AgeLab co-present at Telematics Munich 2012 on the Impact of Typeface on Driver Demand. Monotype Imaging is a Gold sponsor of Telematics Munich 2012– Europe’s largest telematics conference, Oct. 29-30, at Munich Hilton Park Hotel.

Presentation: The Impact of Typeface on Future HMIs

Can certain typefaces mitigate driver distraction? The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) AgeLab and the New England University Transportation Center set out to find the answer along with Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: TYPE), a leading global provider of typefaces, technology and expertise for creative applications and consumer devices. Initial results of an exploratory study show that certain type styles can reduce glance time – the time away from watching the road when driving while interacting with in-vehicle displays.
