History

James Deakin Hall was born in Londonderry, Ireland in 1854. He immigrated to Brampton, Ontario with his parent in 1867 and moved to Toronto in 1868 to join the Notman & Fraser photography studio. In July 1881, Hall settled in Winnipeg and operated a studio with William Johnston at 360 Main Street. Hall bought out Johnson's share six months later and in March 1882, welcomed Skene Lowe as his new partner.

Hall & Lowe specialized in studio portraits as well as Winnipeg buildings and landscapes. They advertised their work as "Indian photos (taken from life), Xmas cards, views of Winnipeg." They also photographed railway construction in Manitoba.

Following a fire in their Winnipeg studio, Hall & Lowe moved to Vancouver, British Columbia where he opened a new studio in October 1887. Hall & Lowe dissolved their partnership in May 1892 when Hall became the sheriff of Vancouver.

Hall died in British Columbia in 1936.
