This is a style of lettering common during the 1920s–50s. It’s typified by a simple, almost modular construction of even strokes and rounded corners on a rectangular grid (think pipes!). Sign painters and makers often used this style as it was easy to learn and quick to produce. Flat- or round-topped ‘A’, ‘M’, and ‘N’s are common in gas-pipe lettering. Sometimes strokes end at a jaunty angle, but mostly its fairly straightforward. Gas-pipe style fonts: http://j.mp/ZyI1zT
