Designed by Dave Davison for Photo-Lettering, Inc. before 1954. Possibly based on a 19th-century design, compare the metal typefaces Vaudeville (Tri-Arts Press, 1966) and Carrousel (T.J. Lyons) [or are these adaptations of Davison’s design?].
The series spans eight styles; A (outlined), B (solid), C (B w/ split shade), D (A w/ shade), E (D w/ inner contour, top half solid), F (B w/ inner contour, similar to Filmotype Quentin, shown in PLINC’s 1967 Alphabet Yearbook, used for sample), G (F w/ hatched bottom half), H (C but w/ hatched shade, no lc).
See also Filmotype Quentin (late 1950s), an all-caps face that’s virtually identical to the caps of Carousel F.
