California Companies – California’s Gold (503)

Huell takes a look at two companies that had their roots in California’s gold rush. First, Huell looks at the Studebaker Car Company, which originally started as a wheelbarrow manufacturer, and visits the Studebaker Wheelbarrow Races at the El Dorado County Fair. Next, Huell tours the original plant of Levi Strauss & Co. in San Francisco and sees one of the first pairs of blue jeans.
