This card marks a turning point in the history of British politics, showing the schedule of Mrs Thatcher's last day in power. As she is photographed leaving No. 10 Downing Street as Prime Minister for the last time and indeed during her final audience with Her Majesty, The Queen, this card would almost certainly have been in her famed handbag.
