Typography help!!!

So i need to pick out some typefaces for these historical progression posters in my Graphic Design class. They have to be appropriate to the specific time periods or at least look like they fit with in that time period.


Victorian (1830-1910)


Art Deco (1920-1930)


Post WWII (1945-1979)


Late 20th Century (1980-2000)


21st Century (2001-present) Sans serif- maybe Helvetica.


Any suggestions for the other four?

J-raycaslon for victorian?

Get Odile in there, and mention the upright italic.

J-Ray

Um I don't remember which period Caslon was indicative of, but it was a significant font design.

Monotype Broadway for art deco

/Monotype Broadway is a heavy display face cut by American Type Founders and Lanston Monotype in the late 1920s./

Cholla Sans (both this and odile were made by the same type designer in the past 10 years)
