Umbra is the correct answer as given by Kjw in post #2.

 

Specifically designed for the Ludlow typesetting system as would have been used in American printshops in the 1950s and 60s. It's a derivation of Futura.

Close that one Dave -

 

I'd call it 'Chicago Demo' Shadow if I were renaming it.....

Why not call it Chicago '60s Small label font?  Why demo?  It was used on store stock, too.

Reminds me of Bob's interview where he tells the interviewer how he could id a host of Chicago tracks by their labels and typefaces... bit sad really but its a beautiful thing.... :rolleyes:
