My mother worked in the advertising department at Park Royal in the late forties/early fifties. When she left to train as an air stewardess the department made her a special leaving card featuring lots of hand drawn cartoons including Alice in Wonderland, the guinness animals and keeper and cartoons relating to her next job as an air 'hostess'.

I'd love to post a picture of the card on the forum but dont see an option to do this. It's pretty unique and I'm wondering if it counts as a collectable? I also have a Guinness staff magazine inside which is a photo of mum at work in the advertising department. I have sent a picture of the card via 'Contact Us' and hope it can be published on here for all to see.

Definitely collectible, I'd say. Sounds like a neat piece. Do you know who did the drawings?
