At the Industrial Exhibit

November 21, 1923, Appleton Post-Crescent
I haven't said much about the Menasha Knitting Mills over the years, though I've seen many references to it.  It was organized in 1919 from what I can gather and the 1924 city directory lists it at 306-308 Broad Street which was the old Germania Society building.   But past the 1928 version of the directory, I see no mentions of it any longer.  I fear it was a casualty of the economic hard times brought about by the Depression, considering the timing of its disappearance.
