There are some who identify the bearded bellman with Charles Darwin and the crew with the crew of Darwin’s ship Beagle. Martens’ 1934 etching of Darwin’s Beagle landing ashore (Fig 3 left) at the port of Santa Cruz in the Tenerite Island of the Canary islands, has been assembled (Fig 3 right, in modern terms it would be called morphing, I guess;) together with Henry Holiday’s illustration of bellman, banker and beaver that accompanied Caroll’s poem [...]. To be fair, Holiday may have just used Darwin as a model. Other similarities have been noticed, however, [...] between the drawing of a weed and Darwin’s sketch on the tree of life.

No, not the Canary Islands. And it isn't morphing either. This is morphing: www.ipernity.com/doc/goetzkluge/25442963/in/album/375923
