    I've got an example of this typeface on a handbill that was printed in 1892.

    The story (including links to scans of the handbill) are at:

    What a nice coincidense and interesting story.
    Here are some more of the fonts used. Top to bottom:
    P22 Victorian Gothic, Dan X Solo's Lafayette and David Nalle's Mephisto.

    Thanks, Koeiekat.

    The other one ("We Guarantee $250) seems to be one brand or another of Latin Condensed.

    I'm not sure about the text part. The dollar sign is especially distinctive (and doesn't seem to match other aspects of the text typeface).

    Any ideas?
