A moment of typeface history: Pabst Oldstyle was based on the hand lettering Frederic Goudy created for the Pabst beer label. It was commissioned in 1902 by Schlesinger & Mayer, a Chicago department store that later became Carson Pirie Scott, for its exclusive use. You can download it now from MyFonts.
