Alice Liddell as "The Beggar Maid" photographed by Lewis Carroll, 1858. Alice Pleasance Liddell (May 4, 1852 - November 16, 1934), known for most of her adult life by her married name, Alice Hargreaves, inspired the children's classic Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, whose protagonist Alice is said to be named after her. Carroll took this photograph in 1858. Dodgson met the Liddell family in 1855. He first befriended Harry, the older brother, and later took both Harry and Ina on several boating trips and picnics to the scenic areas around Oxford. Later, when Harry went to school, Alice and her younger sister Edith joined the party. Dodgson entertained the children by telling them fantastic stories to wile away the time. He also used them as subjects for his hobby, photography. Dodgson himself claimed in later years that his Alice was entirely imaginary and not based upon any real child at all.
