Guildford, England - Alice in Wonderland

A pair of Alice in Wonderland stamps from the UK, cancelled with the Guildford postmark. Author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson aka Lewis Carroll, had a close association with Guildford. He spent much time there visiting his sisters who all lived in a home that he purchased for them. He died in Guildford just before his 66th birthday and is buried there, at the Mount Cemetery.
