1937 UK greetings telegram showing the message received on teletype strip and stuck onto the greetings paper.

1937 greetings telegram issued by the British GPO (General Post Office). Although earlier that the above handwritten
 telegrams, it shows the message received on a teletype paper strip and stuck onto the greetings paper. The
receiving Post Office, Edgware, had been more recently set up and therefore had the modern technology that
the rural Wratting Post Office lacked.
