Physical Description
43 photographs : b&w (28 negatives) ; 18 x 12 cm or smaller
Scope and Content
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. Images taken in earlier years show the full body of the sitter in the interior of the family home. Later images are studio portraits, showing just the head and upper body of the subject.
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.

Admin History/Bio
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.
Scope and Content
Series consists of negatives and proofs produced by Sylvia Schwartz in her portrait studio. Images depict children aged four months to twelve years old. 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.
There are forty portraits total. For most images only the last name of the child is known.
Children from prominent familes include Barbara Raxlan and David Winters. Records have been arranged alphabetically by last name at the item level.

Admin History/Bio
Nathan Gittelmacher was an immigrant from Kiev, Russia who moved to Toronto and first worked as a photographer at Empire Studios. In 1922, he opened up his own business called Elite Studios, located at 615 Queen Street West. He specialized in portraits and catered to a largely Jewish clientele. Many of Nathan's portraits were produced with a large format view camera and printed from glass negatives.
Nathan Gittelmacher changed his family's name to Gilbert in the early 1940s and subsequently altered the family business name to Gilbert Studios. Nathan was married to Nina and they had four children named: Lou, Jack, Albert and Ruth.
Scope and Content
Series consists of photographs taken by Nathan Gilbert. The photographs in this series are mostly of the Gilbert family. One of the Gilbert family portraits depicts the Gilbert automobile with the Elite Studio's insignia written across the side of the car. Also here, are a few examples of studio portraits that reflect Nathan Gilbert's photographic style.

Physical Description
38 photographs : b&w (19 negatives) : 18 x 12 cm or smaller.
Scope and Content
Series consists of negatives and proofs produced by Sylvia Schwartz in the studio. The images depict formal portraits of prominent American and Canadian entertainers from the 1940s and 50s. They chiefly consist of images of the head and upper body of the sitter. Two images show entertainers with their families, two include the entertainers with Sylvia's companions, Jewell Schwartz and Frances Gruber, while one depicts a sitter with his piano. There are 17 subjects in total, as multiple negatives of certain entertainers have been retained.
The most prominent entertainer included in the series is Duke Ellington. Other entertainers included in the series are Willie Byrant, Todd Duncan, Calvin Jackson, Isabelle Lucas, Phyllis Marshall, Herbert Mills (of the Mills Brothers), Libby Morris, Bert Niosi, Bennie Payne, Walter "Foots" Thomas, John Weinzweig, Portia White and Frank Shuster and Johnny Wayne of "Wayne and Shuster".
Most images were taken in Sylvia's Toronto studio, however two were taken at the Apollo Theatre in New York City. Despite the different location, these images are still formal portraits with plain backgrounds and do not feature any interior views of the Apollo.
Notes
All negatives have been scanned and entered into the database as item level descriptions

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.
