answered 1950's Surfboard Label Identification

Recommended Posts

Hi all. In the picture attached is the label of my grandfather's surfboards he used to make in Geelong, Victoria, Australia back in the mid 1950's to mid 1960's.

I need to reproduce the label on one of his original surfboards and to do so requires me to identify the fonts used.

I'm hoping someone here can help me out.

Thank you.

Thank you so much Riccardo. 

I don’t suppose you have any idea on the bold font below too do you?

The closest I can find is Cheltenham Extra Condensed Bold.

And for “Phone”, if you need it and that’s what is “printed”, you could try Grotesque Bold Extended, but just gambling here.
