Re: cooper black italic font on railroad cars

My hope is that a few such typists and fontists reside here. 


Cooper black italic typeface looks like a post-1960 thing, but it was created in the early 1920s, and was according to Wiki, hugely popular in Chicago and the Midwest in the 1920s, not sure if that popularity made it to any railroad ... but if there was any decal that used it, it would  be handy to know.
