Speaking of British children’s literature, many people think of “Alice’s in Wonderland”? Actually the girl who became a model exists in Alice. This time we will colorize models of Alice in the Victorian era left by Lewis Carroll, the author of “Alice in Wonderland”.
This is Alice Liddell which became a model of “Alice in Wonderland”. Lewis Carroll gave her a handwritten book with a story made improvised for Alice Liddell. This book I gave was “Alice in Wonderland”.
By the way this is a cosplay of a beggar figure. Why is it a cosplay, it was such a hobby of Luis Carroll. Although it is actually a gorgeous impression of the Victorian era, there are many children with poverty and the times are somewhat slippery but I can see how it is also in Dickens’ Oliver Twist.
This is a model called Xie. Lewis Carroll likes Xie very much and there are still many photos.
This is a boy named Haram Tenison. It is a photograph of the time of 5, but when becoming an adult, I became the state governor of Australia and inherited the title of the second generation tennison baron.
This is George McDonald, famous for “Lilith” and “The Story of Princesses and Goblins”. George McDonald and Luis Carroll have a lot of exchanges, and according to George McDonald ‘s advice, Lewis decided to publish “Alice’ s in Wonderland” for commercial publication.
This is Maria·White, the daughter of the gatekeeper of the Lampes palace where Lewis Carroll passed frequently.
This is Effe Millet of John Millet’s former dancer of Raphael. Although I first cover Lewis Carroll, the camera was quite luxurious at that time and unusual. To shoot a child was one of the social techniques for Lewis Carroll.
