Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Would any Lewis Carroll experts out there care to give me their opinion on the possibility of this being his work? The date of 1871 fits, the handwriting is similar to that in the facsimile version of Alice's Adventures Underground and of course the surname Liddell made me wonder if this was a relation of Alice Liddell. One of her sisters was called Edith Mary, but I think she would have been older than this little girl by 1871. The contrast in this image is less good than in most of Dodgson's photos that I have seen, so I suspect it probably isn't, but wouldn't it be nice to have found an unknown photograph?
