Previously unseen photos of the girl who inspired Lewis Carroll’s classic children’s novel Alice in Wonderland have been unearthed.
They show a stern-looking young Alice Liddell, in a smart dress, stood next to her younger sister Edith who is wearing a bonnet.
The images were found in a Scottish family’s photo album from the 1860s.
It is attributed to the ‘McCorquodales’, a name that originates to Argyll in the Highlands.
The descendants of the McCorquodales married into the family of Princess Diana.
The album is going under the hammer with London-based Chiswick Auctions.
Carroll, real name Charles Dodgson, was an early photography pioneer and grew very close to the Liddell family.
He wrote his most famous work, which full title is Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, in 1865.
