MYSTERY PHOTOS

Help wanted: Are these family members or family friends?

Previously posted mystery photos from 2014 are below:

#31 IDENTIFIED! Teddy Schwartz at left, brothers-in-law Milton Grossman and Alex Farkas.

#30: Dorothy & Daisy Schwartz in front row; their mom Minnie might be in center of top row. Other names?

#29: Lena Kunstler Farkas and a mystery lady (a cousin thinks maybe her daughter Minnie).


#28: From left, Minnie & Teddy Schwartz, possibly in Florida. Who are the other ladies?
#27: July, 1919. Teddy & Minnie Schwartz at top, son Fred in center foreground. Who else is in this photo? (Unseen: Fred's soon-to-be-born younger sisters, Dorothy and Daisy)

#26 Teddy Schwartz standing at left. Who are the other folks? I think the man standing at right, in a vest, is his long-time employee John, who eventually purchased Teddy's Dairy, but this is a guess.


#25: IDENTIFIED! Teddy Schwartz on left; his sis-in-law Jennie Farkas and bro-in-law Alex Farkas.

#24 NYC Identified: Tillie Jacobs Mahler 

#23 Probably taken in the 1930s or very early 1940s. My Dad Harold Burk is at far right (with orange arrow) and his mother, Henrietta Mahler Burk is left of center seated at main table (orange arrow). Standing above Henrietta's right shoulder is her husband, Isaac Burk, who died in 1943. Is this the Mahler family? When/where was this taken and for what occasion?
