Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
There are no known photographs of the Bronte Sisters but an 'alleged' photo of them has been discovered.
It needs authenticating. Can anyone help the researcher?
The photo is thought to be a Collodion copy of a Daguerreotype. The photographer who they think copied it is John Stewart of Pau, France & London, England. He was brother-in-law of Sir John Herschel.
The original photo must have been taken before Emily died in 1848.
Why is there is no backdrop, just a brick wall?
How to tell if it is copy or not?
