Murray Hill Gothic by Photo-Lettering (1940's)

Any of you guys have any samples of Murray Hill Gothic? Ed Rondthaler talks about it in his book Life With Letters.

The family had several weights and they were all based on Railroad Gothic, but had a proper lowercase. It got a lot of use in the 40's and 50's, from what I can tell.
