The Bazar Pantechnique was a group of shops situated in the former stables of the Prince of Orange. One of these shops was the photographic studio managed by Billing (see that name). The advertisements linked the studio opened in Brussels in March 1842 with Beard’s studio in London. It would thus be the only studio managed by a Beard patentee outside Great Britain. This patent granted to Beard the right to exploit the daguerreotype in England, Wales and the British colonies. Beard had also acquired rights over using the Wolcott camera, a piece of equipment used in the Brussels studio.
