You’re ensured to keep your place with this iconic Albert Square magnetic bookmark by Adolphe Valette.

Valette has captured a moment in history as a horse-drawn carriage shares the square with a motor car – a new and very modern appearance at the time and a strangely rare occurrence in early twentieth-century art. The cellar man pushing his barrow loaded with cases of wine is sometimes believed to be a character who worked for Willoughby’s wine merchants. The dark silhouette of the figure and his rounded working boots became trademark features of Valette’s pupil, Lowry.
