Monroe L. Battel

Monroe L. Battel, 371 Broadway was recorded in the Photographic and fine Arts Journal (New York, New York.) on January 1, 1856.  In an article entitled the Photographic Galleries of America.  Number One, New York. The author visited 69 Galleries in New York City.

M. L. Battel—Here again we encounter the artist. The ambrotypes are excellent. The photographs are worthy of much praise. The gallery is very pleasant and tastefully arranged.

First name and address are from Craig’s Daguerreian Registry.  Even thou M. L. Battel is a known name and activity dates are also known.  I have included names that were listed in the article because of the firsthand account of the author’s description of the gallery and the quality of the photographs on exhibit.
