Notes
Henry Albert Huber was a photographer in Berlin, Ontario, and operated a studio between 1891-1897. Given the life dates of Michael Myers, this image could have been a reproduction done by H.A. Huber, who operated as studio after Myers' death. Michael Delp Myers was the husband of Mary "Polly" Shoemaker, 1808-1896. The image was previously identified as "Great Aunt Polly Meyer's Husband". The image is noted as being part of the "Eby Family Album".

Notes
It is possible that this may be a self taken portrait. Charles Schneuker was born in Berlin, Ontario on 4 May 1857, the son of Conrad Schneuker and Barbara Abel. He operated a photographic studio from 1873 to 1896 and then again from 1899 to 1901 in Berlin, Ontario. He married Emily Louisa Beaumont on 20 September 1886 in Berlin, Ontario. Charles died in Woodstock, Ontario on 29 July 1918. His 29 July 1918 obituary in the Woodstock Daily Sentinel noted that he was 61 years of age at the time of his death and had been a commercial photographer for the Canada Furniture Company. The cause of death was noted as heart failure. Schneuker was survived by his widow, 4 daughters: Louise of Grimsby; Lotta and Esther of Toronto; and Alice at home; and one son, Charles, who was employed by the Grand Trunk Railway Company.
