Can You Identify this vintage San Francisco Parks Font?

Recommended Posts

Park identification signs in San Francisco use a variety of typefaces, but I'm looking for the one pictured. These are prevalent on older signs and despite its distinctive idiosyncrasies (narrow H vs. wide A, etc.) I've been unable to find anything close. I'm hoping to find a commercially licensable version of this.

The low crossbar on the A is unique

And that’s one of the features that made me think it’s not a typeface, but someone trying to mechanically construct a bolder |A| and running out of space for the counter, thus lowering the bar.

Anyway, at least one of the DIN-inspired typefaces I linked to has a rather low bar on |A|.
