Madrid signs on the street

Madrid displays many styles of lettering and numbering.  Here are a few of the ones that caught my eye.
Interesting blend of Art Deco and Art Nouveau letters spell out
CENTRAL.  The R and A are dangerously similar.  Posed by
 the door, David Mash, VP of Innovation at Berklee College
of Music, in Boston who played at this club with
Gary Burton back in the day.  

Note how the D evokes a paella pan.  
A Turkish bath.  I like the symmetry.  

Small adaptations make the M and the S catch your eye.  

I like the M and A.  C and E continue the motif.  

Great, monumental capitals; identify--what else!?--a printer.  
Classic, restrained Art Nouveau .
