John Edward Reeves had a photographic studio at 50 Hermit Road, Canning Town, London He also had one at 109 Queen's Road, Lowestoft which is listed in a trade directory for 1891. Mary (Hall) Gage remembered going there as a young child and she was born in 1898 so it is likely that he kept on the Lowestoft studio in the first decade of the 20th century.
