Silhouettes of Carlyle's father and mother made by Jane Welsh Carlyle with captions in Carlyle's hand and of Carlyle himself made by Robert Blake from two profile photographs taken in the years shortly before he grew his beard in 1854.

The silhouettes of the father and the mother are reproduced from the volume I frontispiece of J. A. Froude, ed., Reminiscences by Thomas Carlyle (London, 1881).
