Name Types

Someone sent me a transcription of her father's diary from his time on the aircraft carrier HMS Warrior in 1954. I've put that at http://brisray.com/dad/Smith.htm if anyone would like to see it.

Among the photos she sent were a couple of his name type which she still has. That got me interested in those things as everything about them, which isn't much, is scattered all over the internet. Name types were so common I don't suppose anyone gave them much thought but I've started a page about them at http://brisray.com/dad/nametypes.htm

Has anyone anything they would like to share about them? I'd be especially interested is anyone knows how they were made. For example, were the letters carved or stamped into the blocks?
