Administrative History
The Noss family traces its origins to Russia/Ukraine. The patriarch, Avraham Noss, died after contracting typhus after being badly beaten in a pogrom. His wife, Toiba, died of either cholera, typhus, or influenza (accounts vary). They left behind four children: Raisa, Meyer, Joseph, and Moshe. The extended family took care of the four orphans but did not have enough food to feed them, so the three youngest were put in a Jewish orphanage. The eldest, Raisa, was too old but came every day to visit her brothers. One day, she arrived only to be told, "The missionaries took them away." The entire orphanage was brought to Canada. A Mr. Hershman from Toronto was involved as was a congregation of Christadelphians from Hamilton including a Mr. Farrar who owned a good-quality clothing store.
Raisa remained in Russia, where she received an education from the Communist Party and became an engineer. Meyer kept in touch with his sister for as long as possible, but the two eventually lost touch.
The Drazin family took in Meyer, the eldest brother, although the family never adopted him. Despite this, he changed his name to Drazin. Joseph ("Joe") was adopted but was returned to Children's Aid, where he went from foster home to foster home. He eventually took back the Noss family name. As for Moshe, he was adopted by Moses Levy and Marietta Steinert. Moshe's new parents changed his name to Edgar Steinert Levy. Edgar Levy is thus the same individual as Moshe Noss. Marietta was well-known in the Hamilton community, and a chapter of the National Council of Jewish Women was named after her.

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.
