Alice Liddell, who inspired the children’s classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, was born on this day in 1852.

From the collection, this is an 1872 photograph of Liddell taken by pioneering Victorian photographer Julia Margaret Cameron (1815-1879) who became known for her powerful portraits of celebrities. On the right is one of John Tenniel’s illustrations for Carroll’s books.

Since 2015 is the 150th aniversary of Alice I suppose I had better quit stalling and tackle her masses of hair 😢 my poor little stitching fingers will be in mini slings by the end! 🏥
