Comments:
It is not known how this bookmark is signed on the reverse, although as it is very similar to the other bookmarks recorded on this site, there can be no doubt it is of GRANT manufacture.

There is recorded on this site an almost identical bookmark, recorded as gb180, the difference being that in the bookmark above there is a grass area in front of the entrance to the exhibition, whilst on gb180, this area has a fountain.

This same bookmark with the grass area is repeated (on this site as gb190), except that that bookmark has the words " THE EXHIBITION BUILDING " woven below the image of the buildings.
