Default etc. —19th-century style

A photographer friend took a picture of an old printshop door (late 19th or early 20th century from the look of it) and sent me a copy. In the charmingly eccentric old type was the line shown at the bottom of the door in this attachment.

I think I have seen that sort of abbreviation for etcetera before, but always using an ampersand that was more clearly an e and a t. Anyway, thought it was really charming, so decided to share.
