Pupils took various rubbings and impressions, comparing the old and new walls of Angel Alley.
Drawing from the illustrations to Little Dorrit.
We used fabric scraps to make characters in costume.
The cover page for Little Dorrit.
My interpretation of the title page with two of the pupils in character with improvised costumes and props.
'Society expresses its views on a question of marriage' (Mrs Merdle).

In total four scenes from the book were represented.
Little Dorrit and her father. The Father of the Marsahlsea.
The pages were three dimensional with the figures cut out of the background and the page of text bowed to create a space.
The four panels were placed along Angel Alleyway, on the wall of the public library, opposite the site of the prison.
The opening was marked by a speech by one of Charles Dicken's great great grand children.
Sadly the panels were vandalised and are no more. They were replaced by a flat version of the images placed out of reach.
