A friend in Florida bought many old photos at a garage sale. The majority of the photos were taken by William J. Schneider, whos studio was at 1153 Boston Road, Bronx, N.Y.
These pics are of his own family. Prominent in many of the shots is Anna Schneider, who seems to be a young woman in most of the photos. Also featured is Aunt Mary Louise Korrade, Ruth, Annie, the Steiner Family, and the Doxey Family. One address for Anna and Jim's home is 4344 Wilder Avenue, The Bronx. One address shown for a young Anna is 207 S. 10th Street, N.Y. A photo of a cottage taken by W.J. Schneider in 1924 shows two older women standing outside a bungalow in Water Witch, New Jersey. There are at least 17 photos in the collection, and possibly more. The person selling the photos said that the photos had been of the family of the first wife of the gentleman who had lived in the house, and they knew nothing of that family. The photos meant nothing to them. These pictures are looking for a good home with the right family.
