Joseph and Gertrude Schwartz were respectively born in the United States and Austria. They had four daughers, Sylvia, Helen, Fanny and Ruth. Joseph was a furier who eventually set up his own business, J. Schwartz & Co. Ltd., a fur manufacturing company on Madison Avenue. He later became a partner in the Park Plaza Hotel on Avenue Road. Helen married Dr. Isaac Shleser, a doctor of internal medicine, and had two daughters, Gillian and Jan. Fanny married Alex Solway and had two children, Herbert and Carol. Ruth was a respected book seller in Toronto. Unlike her siblings, Sylvia was a dwarf, who led a successful life despite her physical limitations. She became a prominent portrait photographer in Toronto and owned a studio on Grenville Road. In 1976 Sylvia set up a special children's book award to honour her late sister Ruth. In 2004, six years after Sylvia's death, her family changed the name of the award to the Ruth and Sylvia Schwartz Children's Book Awards.

Notes
The subjects of this photograph were identified in the original accession list as "Anne, great-grandmother and Jack". It is more likely that [Chava?] is the grandmother of Jack, and that the information was taken down incorrectly, or that the reference was in connection to a later Kamarner generation.
Physical Condition
The photo has been marked by blue pen, particularly around the subjects' heads, and the upper right hand corner of the photograph is bent slightly.

Physical Description
1 photograph : b&w ; 12 x 8 cm
Scope and Content
The snapshot is of an unidentified co-ed group photo at the Delmonte Hotel. Some of the people appear to be the same friends as photographed in photo #20 of the same file. Jack Kamarner may be the individual moving on the steps to the right of the frame, as he is wearing a collared shirt that matches roughly the one worn in photo #20, however the face is blurred, preventing easy identification.
The age of the group appears to be fairly uniform, perhaps in their mid-twenties, suggesting a social organization group activity, or a professional affiliation.
