Sub-series consists of negatives and proofs of portraits taken by Sylvia Schwartz. Portraits were taken both in her studio and in her family home.

The earliest portraits taken are of Ruth Schwartz, Sylvia's sister. They are interesting in their use of props and lighting. Other early portraits are of Gertrude and Joseph Schwartz and Fanny Solway (nee Schwartz).
Other portraits include images of Gerald, Ralph and Rhoda Halbert (the children of Sylvia's cousin Faye Halbert), Jack and Jewell Schwartz (her uncle and cousin), Isaac, Jill and Jan Shleser (her brother-in-law and nieces) and Alex, Carol and Herbert Solway (her brother-in-law, niece and nephew).
Also included in the sub-series are three self-portraits of Sylvia each taken in a different session.

As a portrait photographer, Sylvia Schwartz excelled at photographing children. Through the 1940s and 1950s she carved out a niche for herself, becoming well known in Toronto for specializing in this area. Because of her special relationship with children and the bond she was able to form with them, her child portraits display her most creative work.

They are all formal portraits, showing the children with a variety of props, poses and backdrops. Some depict children by themselves, while others are pictured with their siblings.

Children from prominent familes include Barbara Raxlan and David Winters. Records have been arranged alphabetically by last name at the item level.

Item is a portrait of a man signed in Yiddish. The signature is dated November 18, [1966].
Notes
The photograph has previously been identified as Fishel Bimko, a Yiddish playwright who lived from 1890 to 1965. As the signature on the photograph appears to postdate his death, it is uncertain if the subject is Bimko.
