I saw this version/movie at GEH & loved it!

Alice Liddell (right) with her sisters circa 1859, photographed by Lewis Carroll "A long procession of charming little girls (we know today that they were charming from their photographs) skipped through Carroll’s life, but none ever took the place of his first love, Alice Liddell. ‘I have had some scores of child-friends since your time,’ he wrote to her after her marriage, ‘but they have been quite a different thing." Historian Martin Gardiner

Lewis Carroll and Alice Liddell. Alice's father was the Dean of Christ Church in Oxford. When she was four, she met Carroll while he was photographing the cathedral. He soon became a close friend of the Liddell family.

I would love to know the story behind this photo... the girl in the middle looks so sad. :-(
