History for Maxine’s Pittsburgh: Maxine’s (clothing) was listed in 1930s in Pittsburgh City Directory. Maxine’s, was formed by the Azen family, Hyman Azen was the manager and the store was located at 408 6th Avenue Downtown Pittsburgh. Even though the name “Maxine’s” is still active, they are no longer in business. Maxine’s  seem to have gone out of business by the late 1960s. The Azen family had many business in Pittsburgh.

I would like to thank and credit the “Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh” for providing me with a wealth of information for research.
