Broadway was originally designed by America’s most prolific type designer, Morris Fuller Benton, as a foundry metal type. It was released as a caps only face by the American Type Foundry (ATF) in 1927. The Lanston Monotype Machine Company copied Broadway in 1928, but added a lowercase. Benton added Broadway Condensed in 1929, with a lowercase. This 12 line wood type version is cut from the side grain and has no manufacturer’s mark.
