Comments:
This 1913 Christmas card comprises a folded card, with a postcard type front, with insert silk of Killarney, with a plain back. Inserted into the card, and held in place by a silk ribbon and bow, is a folded paper with printing on the two inside faces.

The card is from Mr and Mrs W.H. Grant, the same address used on all their Christmas cards until 1914. In 1920 it was The Mayor & Mayoress (Councillor & Mrs WH Grant), and in 1921 it became Alderman & Mrs WH Grant, a style that was retained until 1930.
