Did you know that Levi Strauss began his career on the Lower East Side?




Did you know that Levi Strauss began his career on the Lower East Side?

In 1847, at age 18, Levi Strauss (born Leob Strauss, February 26, 1829) left his native home in Bavaria to join his older brothers in NYC, who owned a wholesale dry goods store on the Lower East Side.

By 1853, young Levi received an offer to partner with a businessman who opened a dry goods store in San Fransisco a few years prior. Loaded with goods from the Lower East Side store, Levi packed up and headed to California to take advantage of the booming gold rush industry.

Levi tried to sell canvass he brought from New York, but the material proved to be too thin for tents and wagon covers -- so instead he had a tailor create pants from the material.

Eventually Levi's product became so popular that he had his brothers send him more material, but instead of canvass, they sent him denim -- and the rest is history.

Happy 186th birthday Levi Strauss!

  7. How Mr Benjamin Lee service  grant me a loan!!!

    Hello everyone, I'm Lea Paige Matteo from Zurich Switzerland and want to use this medium to express gratitude to Mr Benjamin service for fulfilling his promise by granting me a loan, I was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organisations but never succeeded and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, I was introduced by a friend named Lisa Rice to this funding service and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 5 working days just like my friend Lisa, I was also granted a loan of $216,000.00 So my advise to everyone who desires a loan, "if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 1.9% rate and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact this funding service. Besides, he doesn't know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, I'm so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces. You can contact them via email on { lfdsloans@outlook.com} or Text through Whatsapp +1-989 394 3740.

  8. Wow! It’s adorable absolutely! My lady’s video show is simply amazing and I couldn’t think that she is so pretty in reality. I recommend you SofiaDate because all girls are real here (I checked it myself) because you can see their docs right on the site. Also I like the instant chat and especially The gifts function. It means that I can make my virtual dating as real as possible, and I already send Nastia a bouquet of her favorite roses. Waiting for pictures of her with my present. mail order brides
