    Garamond Small Caps on the Rue du Port.
    No idea on the other but it is not one suitable for directional signage.

      thank you print driver. It does strike as a Garamond. However I noticed that the signage that attracked my attention most was these following:

      the S and a are peculiar, so is the serifs which are completly oblique and thin. any idea of what it could be anybody?

        Try University Roman.

        Gonna say it again, that font is not suitable for wayfinding. Somebody ''had an idea''
        Then again ADA standards in Canada may be different than the US.

          Thank you PrintDriver, this seems to be it. I do agree with you that it is not a sign for waydinding. This is different maybe because this is quebec, which as different laws then the rest of Canada. Maybe a graphic designer had an idea.
