Biography

William Bell was born in Liverpool, England in 1830. His career as a photographer began as a daguerreotyper working for John Keenan beginning in 1848. In 1852 he opened his own daguerreotype gallery in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In 1873 he took on William H. Rau as an assistant photographer and later became his partner (1870s). Bell's photographic collections include the Geographical Surveys West of the 100th Meridian Expedition of 1872, and Expeditions of 1871, 1872, 1873 and 1874. He died in 1910 in Philadelphia.
