Although living and working for the most part in England, Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell often travelled to the Continent. Found throughout the Angelica Garnett Gift are small tokens and souvenirs of these trips, including a map, postcard and menu, all from Europe. Each of these objects are treasured forms of Bloomsbury memorabilia, imbued with  memories of the past.
