It's surprise #1

What I already suspected, the typographers from 1920 have prepared a nice surprise. It can be seen on the picture which shows the lettering on both sides of the building. My guess is, that the sign with Gemeentelyke (Municipal) is older than the sign with afd zuigelingenzorg (Baby Care Dept.) on it. Or, the second sign had to be put up in a hurry. Anyway, the nice E with the white stripe on only the upper part got transformed to an E with a larger white stripe on the other side of the stem. This means I'll have to do some serious experimenting.
