Alice in Motorland

Alice in Motorland by Horace M. Wyatt. Illustrated by Charles R. Sykes.

Published in 1904, by The Car-Illustrated Ltd: ‘The Car Magazine Series No. 1′. Hardback, clothbound boards.

Introducing such characters as The Marks Hare, The Mad Chaffa and the Suburban Dog; along with old friends like the White Knight and Rabbit.

1904 seems very early to be writing Alice adventures featuring motor cars: she’s obviously a modern girl. She looks very ‘Railway Children’ in her ribboned bonnet on the front cover.

Charles Sykes (1875-1950) was a British artist and sculptor who was responsible for the Spirit of Ecstasy- the Rolls Royce winged mascot.

Horace Wyatt was also responsible for Malice in Kulturland.

Available on Amazon: ALICE IN MOTORLAND

I love going through the 'suggested friends' bit on Facebook- especially when it links two people you know completely independently from each other in an 'x degrees of separation' sort of a way.
