brienneoftarth:

Is this an 1840’s photo of the Bronte sisters? Some believe it might be:

A photo on glass, 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.
