William Batt

1859-1860       Markham Street, over the Post Office, Little Rock, Arkansas.

William Batt appeared in one advertisement on May 12, 1860 in the Arkansas True Democrat  (Little Rock, Arkansas).  Our Arkansas Gallery.—For a year or more we have been collecting pictures of places and prominent persons in Arkansas, and have succeeded in getting up quite a little gallery.  Among others, we are indebted to Mr. E. A. Hines, for an excellent likeness of Capt. Pike, and to Mr. Wm. Batt, the daguerrean artist for some views.  One is a view of the Woodruff building, another of the Ashley mansion in this city, and still another of the city of Napoleon in this State. 

Mr. Batt’s establishment is on Markham street, on the corner of the block above  the post-office, where he furnishes excellent ambrotypes for 25 and 50 cents.

William Batt is not recorded in other photographic directories.  According to the advertisement he was active in 1859, address and location unknow.
