MOST RECENT

Exactly 150 years ago today, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson aka Lewis Carroll (1832 - 1898) first arrived in Guildford. Pictured here is The Chestnuts, the house he acquired for his six unmarried sisters and in which he spent time away from Oxford. It was at The Chestnuts that Carroll wrote Through the Looking Glass (remembered by this sculpture in the adjacent Castle Grounds), and it was in Guildford where the much-lauded author died in 1898. And by the by, The Rob Dickins Collection @wattsgallery holds a number of Dodgson’s photographs, including this portrait of Dante Gabriel Rossetti.

Yesterday I went to All Saints Church in Daresbury Village, near where I live. Lewis Carroll the author of Alice in Wonderland attended this church when he was a little boy. Lewis Carroll's real name was Charles Dodgson. His father was the Vicar of All Saints nearly 200 years ago In January 1932 a stained glass window was installed in the church to celebrate the centenary of Lewis Carroll's birth. The bottom 5 panels of the window show charactersfrom Alice in Wonderland. The White Rabbit was really Alice's father Henry Liddell the Dean of Church College Oxford Dean Liddell had a reputation for being late! Lewis Carroll often told stories to Alice Liddell and her sisters. He wrote and illustrated the story of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and gave it to Alice for Christmas. The real Alice was a perky little girl with short brown hair. Lewis Carroll was not happy with his drawing of Alice so when the book was published John Tenniel did the illustrations. Although he wased his drawings on Lewis Carroll's it is Tenniel's version of Alice that we know today. In the last photo I am sitting by an old font. It used to be inside the church and it was where Charles Dodson (Lewis Carroll) was baptized

“I - I hardly know, sir, just at present - at least I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have changed several times since then.” 🙍🏼‍♀️🐛 ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #ACMI #AliceinWonderland #Wonderland #exhibition #LewisCarroll #CharlesDodgson #DavidHall #Whoareyou #Melbourne #Australia
