I am trying to recreate the below poster. I have found substitute fonts for most of the text I just need help with the part that says "of the CHARLIE NAPIER." I'm wondering if anybody know the typeface?
It's an old poster. Victorian era.

Contact Sovereign Hill in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. It’s a working village museum of the victorian goldfields and the printer there still uses original equipment. I’m pretty sure this is one of their reproductions. [email protected]
What you're looking for is a "stressed" sans-serif, one with obvious contrast. At first glance I thought this was going to be the very common Old Gothic Bold Italic. It's actually slightly darker than this, but it's been digitized for free as Racing Sans. Domaine Sans by Klim is a great modern font with this look if you want something more flexible. Simply slanting Britannic Bold is most of the way there, though.
