Scope and Content
Accession consists of photographs of Henry Springer outside and inside his kosher meat store on Bathurst Street in Toronto. His son, Jeff Springer, appears in one of the photographs.
Administrative History
Henry Springer (1921-2014) was born on 10 November 1921 to Mordechai and Leah Springer in Szczebrzeszyn, Poland. He had two sisters, Brenda and Faigie and one brother, Charles. Seven generations of Springers in Poland were butchers. During the Second World War, the whole family survived as prisoners of Russian labour camps. Following the end of the war, they spent four years in a displaced persons camp in Austria named Steyr, then immigrated to Canada, arriving in Quebec City in 1949. They migrated to Toronto with the assistance of JIAS and the Springer family in Kingston.
After a few years of working in an upholstery factory, Henry and his brother Charles partnered to open a kosher butcher store called Springer’s Kosher Meats, on Augusta Ave. in Kensington Market. In 1958, they opened a second location at 3393 Bathurst St., following the Jewish community's move north. A year or so later they closed the location on Augusta and focused exclusively on the Bathurst St. location until its closing in 1995. Their father Mordechai also worked at the business up until his death in 1982.
The store sold fresh meat, chicken and fish and some delicatessen and was well known for its chickens.
Henry Springer was married to Shriley Springer and together had three children: Rochelle, Hannah and Jeff. He died on 3 November 2014 just shy of his 93rd birthday.

Motel Bergstein was born in 1898 in Buckawchevitz, Galicia. He came to Toronto in 1920 or 1921 and initially worked as an operator in a hat factory. He met and married Rita Katz in 1922. Motel was a member of the communist party and in the early 1930s he replaced JB Salsberg as the union organizer for the Hat, Cap and Millinery Workers Union. He was eventually excommunicated from the communist party for refusing to call a strike after the party's headquarters ordered him to. After his excommunication, he became an active member of the Workmen's Circle. Around 1937 or 1938, Motel began selling life insurance as a sub-agent for his uncle, Max Bergstein. Motel passed away on December 25, 1941.
