- Availability: available
Colorful NS SCHMUCKBLATTELEGRAMM or Decorative Telegrams. These were sold by the post offices, telephone offices, and telegraph offices. Each is a huge folder measuring about 11-3/4 x 16 inches printed on heavy, high-quality cardstock (they fold to 8-1/4 x 11-3/4 inches so they can be delivered in an envelope).
This is a telegram (sent from Oldenburg - Nr. 12 / sent on 20 April 1937 at 12:42) from the Kreisleiter of Oldenburg Engelbart to SA Gruppenführer Johann Heinrich Böhmcker (born 22.07.1896 in Bosau-Braak; died 16.06.1944 near Hannover) in Bremen:
"To the governing Mayor heartiest congratulations"
The background is that Böhmcker was appointed as governing Mayor of Bremen by Carl Röver on 16. April 1937.
Hole punched as shown (which is typically found on this type of item), otherwise excellent condition.
