bookmark of the week


This is overdue but the bookmark of the week is an interesting one. I normally pick up bookmarks from places I have visited or from bookshops. But this bookmark was so unusual that I chose to buy it off eBay. It is a bit of a mystery because it leaves you wondering if there was a library on the Underground for the public or if there was something that staff could use. Also the stamped dates on the bookmark indicate that this was being used before through and after the Second World War. As something that at least makes you think when you are pausing between pages it is a great bookmark.

Yes it was a real gem and hopefully there are a few more oddities on the web to add to the collection!
