What typeface is this 1935 movie screenshot using?

This screen appears in the first sound film in the Irish language, Oidhche Sheanchais, filmed in 1935. A colleague of mine would like to identify the typeface used for the titles, and the online typeface-identifying sites have struck out. Can any MeFite identify it?

Help me figure out how old this sign is?

Approximately how old is this sign, and what font is it? The stucco facade could date from as early as the 1920s, but the lettering on the signs looks to my untrained eye to be from the 70s or later.

Screen font from original Space Invaders?

I'm looking for a font that's based on or looks like the screen font used in the original Taito/Midway Space Invaders from 1978. (Unused witty title for this question: 'Diaresis puny earthlings!')

Font pairing for Handmade Dropshadow JNL

A project I'm working on uses Handmade Dropshadow JNL for the main title. Obviously, that's not a typeface you can use anywhere other than in the title, so can you recommend a secondary display font for subtitles, headings, and so on? Another web-font would be a plus, but not a requirement.

Kaishu font, but written with a ballpoint pen, not a brush

Does anyone know of a free Traditional Chinese kaishu-style font that looks like it was written with a ballpoint pen or pencil (not a calligraphic pen or brush)? I'm currently using HanWangFangSongMedium from this page, which I quite like, but it's in fangsong style. It's for my computer flashcards when trying to remember how to write characters (e.g English word -> Chinese character). [more inside]

Designers, type designers, font geeks - I need your help please. In the past, each "era" has had a typeface that came to represent the "spirit" of that era.

Good typeface for a point-of-sale receipt printer?

Does anyone have suggestions for a good typeface for a point-of-sale receipt printer? I have a project to design messages printed on the bottom of a cash register receipt. These are B&W thermal printers, about 200-250 DPI. The text is 6-12 points. We're going primarily for readability and cleanliness and we're happy to pay for quality. Before we go with what we already have (Verdana, Arial, etc.), we'd love suggestions for what might be better.
