Series consists of photographs, most of which were accumulated by Martha Rieder, with some accumulated by Talmon Henry Rieder and some probably by Margaret Paisley and Paul Rieder. Photographs relate predominantly to multiple generations of the Anthes and Rieder families and include formal and informal family portraits, snapshots of family and friends, and snapshots taken while visiting cottages in the Penetanguishene area.
Other subjects include: Martha and her friends at Ontario Ladies College, business associates of Talmon, the Dominion Tire Company, the Anthes Manufacturing Company, Zion Evangelical Church events and groups, the Kitchener Natatorium, and other subjects. Many photographs from the period 1895-1906 were taken and possibly developed by Martha Rieder.
Series contains eight portraits (plus two duplicates) by Notman & Son, Montreal, all of which are in very good condition; and many portraits by James Esson of Preston. Includes loose photographs, photograph albums, and negatives.
