The photo above shows the chair in the Black Bull public house on the main street in Haworth that was used by Branwell Bronte. The chair is not where it used to be but is now sited on the stairway in front of a nice window.
Patrick Branwell Bronte (26 June 1817 – 24 September 1848) was a painter and poet, the only son of the Bronte family, and the brother of the writers Charlotte, Emily and Anne. The family lived in Haworth at the parsonage which today is a museum.
