Do You Remember?

Skirboll’s Variety Store

The store opened in 1900, the same year as the Mt. Washington branch of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh.  The store carried clothing, toys and household goods and much more!

Ad from 1906 for Skirboll’s Variety store.  Furs were definitely in vogue during that time.

Skirboll’s closed their doors in 1982.  This was the mailer that they sent out to their customers during their going out of business sale.  It was bright yellow.  20190211_191422 (4)
