Little Journeys

Little Journeys published in 1906. This volume contains a chapter on Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Elizabeth Eleanor Siddal. I find it interesting that people refer to her by her maiden name even though married. It seems curious given the time period and haven't found a reason for it. The second "l" is frequently dropped from Siddall, as it is in this instance. Another curiosity.
