Rea the ice cream people

A lady called Pat Cullen posted this photo on facebook and it was sent on to me by a FaceBook user. Pat said its a photo of her grand parents who had an ice cream business in Grange Rd.
I checked my records and the family had 3 shops in Jarrow.
John Rea's shop was in Walter St which is the one I remember in the 50s on the North St junction.
Dominic Rea had one in Ormonde St
Salve Rea in Grange Rd as Pat said.
I think they were linked to the Dragone's the Felling ice cream people somewhere along the line and also the singer Chris Rea,
