Rev. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson

aka Lewis Carroll



Here is a small set of photos. Eventually we want to do something interesting here - But this will do for now.

This page is in memory of Helmut Gernsheim who made Dodgson's photography known to the general public in 1949 and who, over the years, taught us so much about the early days of photography.

There are two round robins. The second is for Alice and the first for the others. At the last image in each, clicking in the upper right takes you to the other set
Clicking on the image takes you to the next image. ñ takes you back an image and j returns you here.
