The image of the front of this card was not
made available to me, although as it is believed
to be a 1923 Grant Family Christmas card, it
would be identical to that of the
other 1923 Christmas card, recorded as gc800-fcc.

The front view of this card was not made available to me, although as the inside poem printed on the left hand leaf is identical to the Grant Family 1923 Christmas card, it is believed this card too is also 1923.
The Christmas card comprises a folded card, with, it is believed, the Christmas and New Year's greeting printed on the front cover. Alderman & Mrs Grant's name would also be printed on the front cover.
Inside to card, there is a poem printed on the left hand leaf, with the silk glued to the right hand leaf. The silk has the title Golly!! Don't I like chicken and the registration number.
The silk is not finished off, with the ragged cut edges exposed. There is a second Christmas card with the same printing as above, but with a different silk stuck on the right hand leaf {recorded as gc800-fcc.
