Caption: Alice Liddell. Portrait of a partly-dressed Alice Liddell, the girl who inspired British author Charles Dodgson (better known as Lewis Carroll) to write the novel Alice in Wonderland (1865). Dodg- son was a friend of the Liddell family, and told stories for their daughters. Alice persuaded him to write the stories down, but her parents event- ually banned Dodgson from seeing her. Dodgson was a noted early portrait photographer, and also took pictures of young girls, including some posing naked. Criticism of this activity led him to give up photography in 1880, & he ordered that his collection of images be burnt on his death. Photo- graphed in 1858 by Dodgson, when Alice was aged 6.
