“It’s all business. It’s what we do, we sell.” – Henry Lehman
In the 1840s, three immigrant brothers stood out from their Alabama neighbours: their textiles shop was closed on Saturday but open Sunday, they had a sign that contrasted a black background with bright yellow letters and, most importantly, they had a penchant for business that took them on a rags-to-riches journey.
With masterful storytelling, the Lehman brothers – Henry, Emanuel and Mayer – spin a tale of opportunity, invention and capitalism as they painstakingly weave their family into the fabric of America. The epic story of a nation.
