Day 7 — National Blog-posting Month weekend photo

“The Victorian interest in the Orient is demonstrated in this photograph [of Lorina and Alice Liddell]. The genuine Chinese costumes were probably borrowed from one of the Oxford museums.”

— Lewis Carroll, Photographer: The Princeton University Library Albums (2002)

I think Xie Kitchin is wearing one of the costumes Lorina and Alice Liddell wore on Day 5 — National Blog-Posting Month.

NOTE: The Chinese boxes in this picture were probably borrowed from one of the Oxford museums, too.
