This is a fun little document relating to British Social History.

It is a card (probably an invitation or menu card - but this one is blank inside) for the Annual dinner of The Press Club: Home Office Night. It is for the year 1926.

The Press Club was established in 1882 as a London gentlemen's club. For much of its history, it occupied premises in Wine Office Court, near Fleet Street.

It still exists today, as a society for journalists, but no longer offers club facilities, which ended with its leaving Wine Office Court in 1986.

There is a quirky caricature on the front cover - it shows a gentleman dressed up in his best bib and tucker - and on his way to a reception at the club.

A rare wee survivor - now over 90 years old.

Dimensions: 18.5 x 14 cm

Probably a wee item for the specialist collector of items relating to London Clubs or the Press.
