ISO: Identifying Baltimore Newspapers Typefaces

Via the contact form:

I’m trying to determine the typeface used by Baltimore newspapers ca. 1890. With Mergenthler’s Linotype company in Baltimore, my thought is that the Baltimore newspapers were quick converts to the new technology, and they probably used the initial factory-supplied typeface.
