Physical description

Christmas card, of portrait proportions with a left-hand centrefold,
deckled edges, and a recessed and partly cut-out front. The front shows
Father Christmas cycling through the snow with his sack of
presents on his back, with the words "A MERRY CHRISTMAS", and a
doll, ball and two crackers to one side. The wording inside reads:
"Here's good old father Christmas
On his bicycle astride
May he bring you lots of presents
And a merry Christmas-tide"
F.G.S.
