William James Hall (1877–1951)

from Pastoral Review and Graziers' Record

Mr. William J. Hall, the well known livestock photographer, died in Sydney last month after a long illness. The late Mr. Hall, who attended most of the leading shows in Australia for many years, was well known to livestock breeders. His work appeared regularly in the "Pastoral Review's" stud stock pages, also in "The Pastoral Homes of Australia" published some years ago. In commercial photography circles he was generally considered to have pioneered livestock photography in this country and he set a particularly high standard in his art.
