Greetings to Pennington Kirkgate

A flea market find retrieved from a dusty box of menus and football ephemera. 
A GPO greetings telegram illustrated by Clifford Bayly complete with age-spotted envelope. Apologies for not having more to tell you about Clifford Bayly, only that his illustrations pop up occasionally in books and pamphlets from 1950's - 1980's. Would love to know a little more.
Such a jolly, vibrant greeting would have been an absolute pleasure to receive, despite the wording inside being somewhat plain!

We love the colours and styling on the telegram.
