[texhax] old script font

Ther is an old script font that was popular in math books published in the 50s, 60s, and at least into the early 70s. Example letters "B", "T", "U", "A", and a few others can be seen in Kelley's Genreal Topology (e.g., p.46 has "B" and "T"). It is also found in Simmons's Topology and Modern Analysis, Baum's Elementary Topology, and the table of contents (but not the text!) of Rickert's Banach Algebras.

How do I find out what font this is, and whether a form suitable for use with LaTeX exists?
