Stories of the Millyard

Tuesday, January 22, 2019
4:30 - 6:30 p.m.
Millyard Museum

Millyard ViewWithin each brick room of Manchester's Millyard, there echoes a great story. Of entrepreneurism, ingenuity and leadership. Join us Jan. 22 at the Millyard Museum from 4:30 PM – 6:30 PM for a listening session of these tales, along with a beer tasting with Great North Aleworks.

Ralph Sidore will share the rise of Pandora Industries, his family's business which settled in Manchester in 1940. Ralph's mother, May (Blum) Sidore Gruber was the CEO of Pandora and was once dubbed "the Mother of Modern Manchester."

At its peak, Pandora turned out 60,000 knitted sweaters a week, and the company played a key role in bringing Manchester back from the economic brink following the 1936 bankruptcy of the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company.
