More about Edward Reeves:

"Edward Reeves took up studio photography in Lewes in 1855. Today his great-grandson is still running the business, believed to be the oldest continuously operated photographic studio in the world. The Reeves Studio has an archive of over 100,000 glass plates and related paperwork. It is a unique record of the daily life of this market town and the history of commercial photographic practice."
