1859                Near the Ferry Landing, Cincinnati, Ohio.

Moore was recorded in one advertisement that appeared on November 14, 1859 in The Penny Press (Cincinnati, Ohio).  Art Palace.—We hope our citizens desirous of procuring likenesses of themselves and family will call at the “Art Palace,” near the ferry landing, and let Mr. Moore demonstrate to them that his pictures are of a superior order.  Ambrotypes, Melainotypes and Stereoscopes are executed in the best style.  In this latter branch, in particular, he has been experimenting for the last ten years, and has now one of the best instruments in the country.  Let everybody call and examine the likenesses taken with it.

Moore is not recorded in other photographic directories as being active in Cincinnati.  William H. Moore was active in Cincinnati in 1857 to 1897 his address in 1859 was 10 W. Fifth Street,[1]  which is several blocks from the waterfront.  One might speculate that “near the ferry landing” might suggest that his Art Palace was a boat?
