The real Alice and Lewis Carroll - new items!
As you probably know, Alice in Wonderland was a real little girl. Lewis Carroll who, on top of being a teacher, mathematician and writer, was also a photographer. We therefore have photos of her and himself.
Lewis Carroll was one of the first photographers, when it was still an expensive and time consuming hobby. He was very popular among famous people and royalties of his time.
By the time he took photos of Alice, exposition time had dropped down to about a minute (from over an hour a few years earlier)
But it was still quite an achievement to have little kids stay still for a whole minute.

I didn't know that he was in photography!
Cool photo's and items!
I had no idea there was a real Alice. So cool!
that's a lovely idea!
Amazing new earrings and rings!!
wow! I love the real Alice, much more better with brown hair! and the rings are really nice, minimalist and elegant.
Wow you taught me something new! Lovely pieces, good luck with the sale!
I didn't know that he was a photographer too. Yes crazy when you think of the time you needed to sit still for a decent photography.
The photographies which needed hours of exposure make great city picture though, as there are no humans on them. Kinda eery too!
Your idea is gorgeous and the photos too!!! Background of the tale:) Very cool!!!
