FAMILIES: Schwartz

Months after the death of his father, Isaac Schwartz (1863-1929), Julian Schwartz (1893-1969) founded Schwartz Ready-to-Wear. Located in one of the storefronts of a newly constructed building owned by Julian Schwartz, the store was stocked with clothes of the latest fashions from New York. Schwartz Ready-to-Wear remained in operation through at least 1964.
