Was Mrs HADINGHAM on Great Yarmouth's Britannia Pier in the early 1900s?

Classification: Query
Surnames: GOBBITT, HADINGHAM, HARRISON, MILLER, ROCKHILL
These two photographs are from an album formerly owned by Walter GOBBITT (1862-1952) and his wife Ellen (1868-1954) who married at Oulton, Suffolk, in 1893. In the group portrait (an 1880s-style cabinet print by Mrs Elizabeth MILLER's Royal Photographic Studio in Yarmouth) Ellen is behind the table, standing next to her sister Rosalie HADINGHAM (1867-1932) who married Clifford Rockhill HARRISON (1865-1936) at Norwich (Christ Church, New Catton?) in 1899. Their mother is sitting at the front. She was Louisa Ann HADINGHAM née ROCKHILL (c.1830-1906) of Ilketshall St Andrew or Beccles, Suffolk, the wife of George HADINGHAM (1823-1890).

Louisa may also be the lady in the later photograph, an unmounted print measuring about 8 cm by 10.5 cm, apparently copied from an earlier one. The back is blank but the intertwined initials in the railing suggest the possibility of Britannia Pier, Yarmouth, which was rebuilt in 1901, probably not long before this picture was taken. Can anyone date it more exactly or confirm the location?
