You should be ashamed of yourself Mono, making Huerro wait 21 minutes for an answer.

It's the anticipation that makes it worth-while.

I have no idea. What The Font doesn't come up with anything close.

The closest thing I could come up with was a sans-serif font, which is incorrect. If you look at the letters below, the U & L in Williams are close, as is the K in Luke, but they don't have the serifs that the sign has. For the record, the font below is Roxy Medium.



I'm thinking they're custom to the site you got the signs from. Or they've been tweaked in whatever graphic program was used to create the sign.

Four fonts walk into a pub. The barman says, "Hey! Get out! We don't want your type in here."

Man, I'm getting slow!

5 years out of the design business and my "font-finding" radar is toast.
