150 Years of Alice 1865-2015
On a boat with her sisters in 1862, Alice Liddell asked The Rev Charles Dodgson to write down his stories. Maths don of Christ Church at Oxford University where her father was Dean, Dodgson always called it the “golden afternoon”. From a large family his genius “logical” nonsense delights both young and old.

 The hookah-smoking Caterpillar gives a tutorial. His academic sleeve denotes an Oxford professor. Alice knew most of them as their children were her friends.

 In 1863 The Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII, an ex-Christ Church student spent some honeymoon at the Deanery.
His bride Princess Alix’s desire to play croquet there with the Liddell children is alluded to above. “Alice thought she had never seen such a curious croquet ground in her life: it was all ridges and furrows: the croquet balls were live hedgehogs, and the mallets live flamingoes.” Chapter 8.

 Queen Alice demands this door be opened to the Frog in The Looking Glass. It is the Norman door of the Dean’s Chapter House from Christ Church. Inside the White and Red Queens have a banquet.

 In the final Chapter 12 the Red Queen cries, “Off with her head” to Alice who replies, “You’re nothing but a pack of cards”. The cards fly as Alice wakes from her dream covered in real garden leaves.
