From the reference box #127

#127 - Post Office Telegram, 14 November 1946. I picked this up at a car boot sale last summer. The envelope is only slightly bigger than a business card and made from extremely thin paper (as is the telegram).

I bought it because the simplicity of the type on the envelope attracted my attention- clear and functional, with no hint at the message inside. In this case a happy one ' [to] Brown 9 Watsons Walk St-Albans= Congratulations on your 21 st birthday love= Jean D+'.
