We are very proud to announce that this year The Sisters’ Room is collaborating with the Brontë Parsonage Museum. On the last Friday of each month we will publish special contents curated by the experts of the museum. Let’s have a look at what’s inside the closets, drawers and cupboards at the Parsonage. You will find in this new category some of the objects that belonged to the Brontë family and which are kept in the Brontë Parsonage Museum archives. Enjoy this new article about Charlotte’s boots.
Charlotte was probably only about four foot ten inches high and was often described as being as small as a child. Many items of her clothing support these descriptions and the diminutive size of these cloth boots is a perfect example. They are made of brown and white patterned cloth and have a leather tipped toe and sole and lace up from the instep to the ankle. They would offer little protection against the wet and windy weather of Haworth and the moors.
