I'm nearly certain this is not a font since I had to digitally reproduce the glyphs from signage in an old photograph, but I could be wrong. My main reason for posting was to see if anybody recognized the type, and if it had a name? possibly from an old specimen book or something?

Anyone know what the typeface is for the "Holiday 2012" text? Images attached. thank you!
I'm looking for a font similar to this font on an old cricket scoreboard. I like the uneven, and hand painted look of it. I imagine this was hand painted, but if anyone knows of anything similar, I'd love to know.
Went camping in October and really enjoyed the hand-lettering on all the park signs. Can anyone tell if this was based off a typeface that has been digitized? Obviously it's all hand-painted, but thought there was probably some sort of stencil used.
Love the subtle curvature of the letter forms like A, V and N.
I would appreciate general feedback on this image database I've been working on, and I would also like fellow Typophiles to get involved and contribute on any level. Cheers, RD
Hey Typophile buddies! I need some help- I'm working on the identity for a small restaurant opening in my neighborhood soon. I want it to look like the older hand painted gold leaf window signs-
I need your help to find a proper typeface that is in the style I'm looking for here- So far I was thinking Interstate Condensed Bold:
But I'm really looking for something more maybe.. naive? more flawed possibly- something a little more hand painted and older looking.
