Black Sheep Branwell: It wasn’t ALL Rock and Roll…
It’s Sunday, so it’s just a quick post again. Whilst in Haworth I visited Branwell Bronte’s exhibition. It’s a small one, but it at least affords us a more rounded picture of Patrick Bronte’s tragic son. There were small water colours, poems both in tiny form and a more ordinary format.
Small plays and even Branwell’s wallet were displayed. I couldn’t get an image of it, but it was larger than I thought….and probably empty for many a long year lol!
Amazingly, Branwell was once a member of the Temperance Society, and once presided! A couple of his Temperance cards are on display, signed by himself and his father Patrick.
