Trollope Photobombs Deal Noir

047

The pop-up Trollope made an unscheduled appearance at the Deal Noir crime fiction conference taking place over the weekend.

The photo shows Trollope outside Deal Castle, next to which is the former Railway Hotel where Dickens stayed and made a speech to mark the opening of the railway line to Deal in 1847. It is unlikely that Trollope was present on that occasion as his family connection with Dickens – through his sister-in-law Frances Trollope (his brother Thomas’s second wife and elder sister of Ellen Ternan who was Dickens’ mistress)  – only dates from 1866.
