Typeface Identification

Can anyone help me identify the typeface in the attached photo. The only information I am certain about is that it was created sometime before 1941.

I would think this is some sort of hand-cut text rather than a typeface- probably a wood or lino block. It seems very inconsistent for it to be type. I could be wrong though and perhaps its just badly printed or worn out type.

I should have added that the text is from a poster printed in the 1930’s. I had to take the image from a photo of the poster so I am sure that adds to the rough nature of it. I agree that it may be hand drawn or cut I was hoping to find out if there is a metal or digital typeface out there that resembles this one.

Hi Robert,

It is hand drawn or hand cut and there is no comparable metal typeface that I know of.
