Alice Liddell – The real little girl who inspired Alice in Wonderland (10 pics)




When Lewis Carroll  was photographing Alice Liddell , the little girl who inspired the famous novel Alice in Wonderland ! If we already talked about Kathryn Beaumont, the model for the Alice in Wonderland movie by Disney , I would like to introduce Alice Liddell , the daughter of a couple of friends of Lewis Carroll , who inspired the novelist to write his masterpiece. During the 1850s, Lewis Carroll used the  wet plate collodion process to photograph the girl, described as mischievous, curious and dreamy by the writer. The little Alice Liddell became a few years later his main inspiration for the writing of the novel Alice in Wonderland .
