Administrative History
Hyman (Chaim) Sprachman (b. 1856) arrived in Toronto at the end of the nineteenth century with his eldest son Benjamin (b. 1877), who was twenty at the time. They both worked as peddlers and resided in a boarding home for a while. Hyman sent for his family in Austria and they arrived in 1904. His family included his wife Sheindel and children Rebecca (b. 1887), Lena (b. 1891), Fanny (b. 1892) and Abraham (b. 1894). The family originally lived at 30 Gerrard and then relocated to 123 Baldwin around 1914. Abraham became a prominent architect and married his cousin Mina Sprachman (b. 1900) in 1921. They had two children: Mendel and Sheila. Mandel followed in his father's footsteps and also became a nationally recognized and acclaimed architect. Both specialized in theatre design and renovations.

Administrative History
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. Many of Nathan’s portraits were produced with a large format view camera and from glass negatives.
During the 1940s, the family changed its name to Gilbert and subsequently altered the name of the business to Gilbert Studios. Nathan’s son, Albert, who was born 18 November 1922, started working in the family business in 1941, when he was 19 years old. He eventually assumed control of it after his father retired. He moved the studio to Eglington Avenue and then later to Davenport Road, its current location, in order to accommodate its growing clientele.
Al made a name for himself as a portrait photographer, using natural light in innovative ways to create more natural looking portraits. Al’s primary work involved producing portraits of families, weddings, bar mitzvahs, special events and dinners. Most of his early clients were from the Jewish community. In turn, he also was paid to produce portraits of local entrepreneurs, and his multi-year contract with the city, gave him sole responsibility for the production of portraits of the mayors and councilmen and women. He later branched out beyond the Jewish community, and began to produce images of businessmen and leaders from the Italian community in Toronto.
n addition to the paid contracts involving local personalities and groups, Al Gilbert has also produced many artistic portraits of local, national and international celebrities, artists and leaders such as: Wayne and Shuster, Howie Mandel, Oscar Peterson, Frank Sinatra, Duke Ellington, Robertson Davies, several Canadian prime ministers as well as Prince Charles, all of the Israeli prime ministers, which were made into stamps by the Israeli government, and finally, the last Pope. Gilbert’s work therefore captures a huge range of individuals from the ordinary bride to extraordinary world leaders.
Al has won many awards as well as accolades from his peers throughout his career. He is the three-time recipient of the prestigious Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC) Photographer of the year honour. He has been named Fellow of the photographic societies in Canada, Britain and the United States. In 1990, he was awarded the Order of Canada and recently nominated for the Order of Ontario. In January 2007, the Professional Photographers of America presented him with their Lifetime Achievement Award. This award is the highest honor PPA can bestow on a person for their body of work and influence on professional photography.

Scope and Content
The accession consists of two photographs of Reverend Saul Wolf Gringorten and his wife Rachel.
Administrative History
Saul Wolf Gringorten and his wife Rachel Gringorten (née Melnick) were born in Poland in 1876 and 1881 respectively. They moved to Canada in 1910 with their eldest child. They subsequently had five more after their arrival.Their children included Morris, Jennie, Jacob, Esther, Louis, and Isaac.
Rabbi Gringorten served as spiritual leader, teacher, shochet, and mohel for the Brantford Jewish community after his arrival for thirteen years. He then moved to Toronto during the early 1920s and became the principal of a Jewish school. The family lived at 26 Cecil Street at that time and then moved to 393 Markham Street during the late 1920s or early 1930s. He became active in the Jewish community, serving as vice-president of the Sons of Jacob, a board member of the Folks Fareign, and the first trustee of the Old Folks Home.
Rabbi Gringorten and his wife moved to California during the 1940s in order to live in a climate that was better for their health. Rachel passed away in 1947, and the rabbi followed in 1959.
