Miriam Streeter, formerly Zisovic

Hello. I am 71 years old. I went to Fairfax High School and graduated in 1964. During this time my father owned a shoe repair shop down the street from Canter’s Deli. He made shoes for a few celebrities such as Shelley Winters, Robert Taylor, Nick Adams, Pinkey Lee and Mae West. He also worked for Western Costume. His name was Max Zisovic. His store is now a pharmacy. Ms. West used to send a limo to pick up my dad and take him to her residence to do fittings. He used to draw the feet on paper bags and write measurements on the paper next to certain areas of the foot. Unfortunately I have no actual proof of this but I know this is true.

Hello Miriam, thank you for sharing! This is fascinating information, and so relevant to Los Angeles and Hollywood history.
