Alice in Wonderland?

This Victorian photograph of a child shows her new dress and a pair of remarkable slippers. I wonder why she isn't looking at the camera? I wonder, also, about the size of the chair. Could this be Alice in Wonderland? Sadly, no. A spidery hand has written on the reverse: "Miss Dorothea Bradford at an early age"
