#WombatFriday: T-Dub Visits the Rossetti Clan

T-Dub Photobombs Great Moments in Pre-Raphaelite History.

September 1863. Lewis Carroll, author of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, photographs Dante Gabriel Rossetti with his sister Christina, mother Frances, and brother William. Thaddeus Fern Diogenes Wombat, known to friends as T-Dub, crashes their little soiree, much to Rossetti’s perplexed delight.

Carroll, whose real name was Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, wrote a charming account of visiting Rossetti, which you can read courtesy the Victorian Web.

Want to catch up on T-Dub’s shenanigans?  Here’s a recap of his recent time traveling adventures.
