Alice Liddell- Lewis Carroll's Inspiration
Photo of a young Alice Liddell (1852 - 1934) dressed up as a beggar. Of course, Alice Liddell lived a wealthy life as one of four children born to Henry Liddell, Dean of Christ Church in Oxford, and Lorina Hanna Reeve Liddell.
Much controversy surrounds how much Lewis Carroll actually developed the character Alice from "Alice in Wonderland" based on Alice Liddell. However, it is certain, that Alice Liddle played a key role in getting Charles Dodgson, aka Lewis Carroll, to create the story.
