Bill, I have a modest collection of type catalogs, including theVery true, and the problem gets worse as time goes on, because you no longer need a type foundry and a set of hand crafted master patterns to offer a typeface for sale; all you need is a copy of Fontographer and a web site.

Both of these look similar to the more modern sans serif lettering used by FGE, in fact, given the name, I bet Refrigerator was inspired by the lettering on refrigerator cars. That's not to say it IS the lettering on refrigerator cars, and certainly not to say that this is what the FGE draftsmen were working from.
