An ambrotype photograph of Haworth Parsonage taken before Patrick Bronte’s death in 1861. An ambrotype is an early type of glass negative made to appear as a positive by backing it with black varnish or paper.
The Going-Away Dress of Charlotte Brontë. The pattern is taken from the pretty dress which Charlotte Brontë wore on the 29th June, 1854, when she left Howarth with her new husband, Arthur Bell Nicholls, on their way to Ireland for their honeymoon. The dress is now owned by the Brontë Parsonage Museum, Howarth.
