Here's a fun trivia for you for when you go see Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland movie: did you know that there actually was a real alice? Her name was Alice Pleasance Lidell.
From The Real Alice in Wonderland gallery over at LIFE:
Before Alice ever set foot in Wonderland, there was Alice Liddell, the 10-year-old friend of an eccentric, stuttering lecturer in mathematics who would later find fame as a writer, under the name Lewis Carroll. (Pictured: A photo by Carroll of a 6-year-old Alice Liddell as "the Beggar-Maid" in 1858.)
