What fonts used in this F. Forshew ad from late 1800s?

Recommended Posts

I saw this in this website dedicated to antique signs and ads. http://www.sheaff-ephemera.com/list/gaslight_album/f_forshew.html#previous-photo


I know they most definitely were drawn for this project specifically, but I'm looking for alternatives. 

I see a constant here thick and short x height, maybe not so much in the first image (241 warren st.) Which I find very interesting. 

Any fonts similar to these three would be very much appreciated.
