Several years ago a photo titled "The Bronte Sisters" was found
in France and purchased to help illustrate a book about photography. It wasn't thought to be of any
great interest until it was discovered that there were no photos of the sisters.
A photo on glass,1. it dates
from the 1850s, and written on the back in French is “Les Sœurs Brontë.” Although Emily
and Anne died in the 1840s, copies were made of their other portraits in the 1850s, one by a
photographer from France.
You can compare these ladies with images and descriptions of the Bronte Sisters
and there is research on the fashions, early photography and a possible location.
