Congratulations to veteran Lebrecht photographer, Graham Salter, who has set up a new website called www.CharlesDickensPhotos.com. He has spent the last year travelling the length and breadth of the UK photographing places connected to Charles Dickens’ works and life for the 200th birth anniversary year. In order to do this properly, Graham has carried out extensive research on all the novels written by Dickens and has photographed such sites as the remaining parts of Marshalsea Prison, the cemetery where Smike, companion to Nicholas Nickleby, is buried and much more. The Author Pictures at Lebrecht website, complements his photographs with hundreds of illustrations of Dickens, his friends and family and, of course, the famous characters in his books.
Ellen (Nelly) Ternan, the love of novelist Charles Dickens from 1857 onwards, lived here in Southsea.
