ALBUMEN PRINT by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll), 1862 or 1863 - Annie Rogers (right) and Mary Jackson dressed up and posed as Queen Eleanor and the Fair Rosamund (wife and mistress of King Henry II) in illustration of a famous Oxford legend; Miss Rogers, daughter of the economist Thorold Rogers, was to become a pioneer of women's education in Oxford; this photograph, inscribed (later) with the date June 1862, is probably one of those taken on July 3, 1863, when Dodgson's diary shows that he photographed these two girls together
