i’m planning a layout for my site (that is waiting to be uploaded). it’s going to center around an old photograph of my grandmother in her first flat in detroit. this was in 1955, but at a glance, the photo looks like it can be dated anywhere from 1940 - 1955.
i don’t want to use arial or (shudder) times new roman. besides the fact i hate those fonts, they don’t seem like they would match well with the image. so can anyone recommend some fonts (preferably free for downloading) that would have been commonly used for body text in the 40s to mid 50s?
