Alice and the Doormouse photograph, 1887.

Postby Nathan Grainger » Thu Dec 22, 2011 10:40 am

Dear All

I have an early photograph of a theatrical production from 1887 of Alice and Doormouse. I wonder if anyone might be able to give me any more information on this?

Thanks

Nathan

Is it this one?

This might be:
Isa Bowman as Alice and Emmie Bowman as the Dormouse, in a Stage Production

Or alternatively:
[Herbert Rose Barraud.]
[Published by Carson & Comerford, 1 April 1887.]
Photograph. Sheet 159 x 115mm. 6¼ x 4½".
Phoebe Carlo (active 1880s-1890s) as Alice and Dorothy d'Alcourt (active mid-late 1880s) as Dormouse.
They performed in Alice in Wonderland, as musical pantomime by Henry Saville Clark (1841-1893) and Walter Slaughter, with Lewis Carroll's permission. It opened at the Prince of Wales Theatre on 23 December 1886, and was a huge success for consecutive decades.

EDIT It appears to be the latter, Phoebe Carlo, according to this book here:

http://www.amazon.com/reader/0754604667 ... 0754604667

Which means it is of this production:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alice_in_W ... _(musical)

(All assuming that that is the picture you're referring to, of course :p)



EDIT AGAIN Oh teriffic, the link doesn't work. If you click the link then add "_(musical)" at the end of the address, that should get you there :)
