Bookmark Monday – Queen Victoria (May 22)

bookmark-mondayBookmark Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Aloi from guiltless reading. Take a picture of one of your favourite bookmarks, post it on your blog, and head over to guiltless reading to share a to your post.

Today is the Victoria Day holiday in Canada, so I thought I’d share this picture of a souvenir bookmark that dates from 1897 and was issued to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. It is on display at the British Museum.
