Scope and Content
Accession consists of an Underwood English typewriter made before 1910. It is metal with various parts and was sold at the City Typewriter Company on Adelaide St. in Toronto.
Administrative History
The Underwood typewriter was invented by the American Franz X. Wagner in the late 1890s. Wagner showed his model to the manufacturer of inks and typewriter ribbons, John Underwood. The Underwood typewriter was the forerunner to the modern typewriter, with its mechanics and appearance being almost identical to those seen today. Its success lay in one major advancement. This was a design that allowed typists to view what they were writing. Previous models had the paper and writing enclosed because the workings of the machine prevented visibility. The machine also sped up the type bar so that typing could be done with a lighter touch. It also had two shift keys giving capital letters and lowercase, and a tabulator key, which prevented rapid travel of the carriage (the top part of the typewriter). The machine was a success and the company had to move twice to expand, changing its name in the process from the Wagner Typewriter Company to the Underwood Typewriter Company. By 1939, five million Underwood machines had been produced and marketed all around the world.
Underwood Typewriter Company started to introduce addition and subtraction buttons around 1910, this typewriter does not have those buttons so it was likely made before 1910.

Mark Geldzaeler was born in 1862 in Galicia, probably Kolbuszowa, and died in Toronto in 1932. His wife Yetta [Shumer] (1870-1952) had immigrated to Toronto from Stanislau with her parents, Louis (Leib) and Chava Shumer, in the mid-1880s. Mark and Yetta were married in Toronto on February 2, 1890.
Prior to his arrival in Toronto, Mark Geldzaeler had been a religious scholar and teacher in the old country. In 1892, he became the Assistant Chazan at Holy Blossom synagogue on Bond Street. This official title notwithstanding, he was also the synagogue's shamus [caretaker], religious school teacher, and bar mitzvah tutor. He lived with his family just behind the synagogue, in a property owned by the synagogue, before eventually moving to a house on Walmer Road.
The family had six children: Bernard (1891-1974) m. Hortense; Rose (1892-1966) m. Samuel Aaron Harris; Rachel (1897-?) m Isidore Ruskin; Solly (1899-1902); Alfred ("Alfie") Benjamin (1901-1918) d. of influenza during the epidemic; and Freda Frances (1907-2002) m. Simon Ramm.

Admin History/Bio
Gilbert Studios was originally called Elite Studios and was located at 513 Queen Street West, Toronto. The owner, Nathan Gittelmacher, immigrated to Toronto from Kiev, Ukraine after the First World War. He first worked as a photographer at Empire Studios, and then in 1922, opened up his own studio, Elite Studios, at 615 Queen Street West, which serviced a largely Jewish clientele, photographing weddings, bar mitzvahs, as well as Jewish community events. The studio moved to 615 Queen St. West in July 1923
.During the 1940s, the family changed its name to Gilbert and subsequently altered the name of the business to Gilbert Studios. His son, Al Gilbert, was born in 1922, and started working in the family business in 1941, when he was 19 years of age. He eventually assumed control of it after his father retired. He moved the studio to Eglinton Avenue and then later to Davenport Road, its current location. Since that time he has been the only or principal photographer for the studio.
Early on in his career, Al made a name for himself as a portrait photographer. At that time, he mostly catered to the Jewish community, photographing brides, rabbis, businessmen and communal events and celebrations. Over the years, he branched out and photographed prominent individuals from the Italian community of Toronto, as well as well as many of the mayors and councilmen and women from Toronto, due to his multi-year contract with the city. In addition, he has photographed some of the most important people of our time – from Canada and abroad – including artists, politicians, scientists, philanthropists, athletes, and religious figures.
Over the years, Al has won many competitions, awards and accolades. He is a three-time recipient of the prestigious Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC) photographer of the year award. He has also been named a Fellow of the photographic societies in Canada, Britain and the United States. Al was also the first recipient of the Yousuf Karsh award. In 1990, he was recognized for his contribution to the nation as an artist with the Order of Canada award. Finally, in 2007, he was awarded the Professional Photographers of America’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
Gilbert Studios is still in business today.
Scope and Content
Fonds consists of images taken by Nathan and Al Gilbert, and in addition, there are some images the Gilbert family acquired, from the early 1900s, that have historical significance to the Toronto Jewish community.
