Reeves, M.

London restaurant proprietor who, in association with F. M. Parkes, gained renown in 1877 as one of the earliest practitioners of spirit photography in England. He was said to have contributed a considerable part of the team's power, as without him Parkes could not obtain recognizable spirit "extras" on his photographic plates. The association was dissolved when Reeves emigrated to Canada. Many of the psychic pictures that appeared on their plates were symbolic.
