They must sell a lot of ice! :-)

In those days people had ice boxes instead of refrigerators. The ice came in blocks about one foot cubes.

My mother had an ice box and we had an ice man who came by every day or every other day. When she wanted ice she hung a sign in the window. If you wanted ice in between ice man's visits, you could buy it at stores or gas stations.

You put a card in the window, about a foot square, each side listed a quantity, you put the side up that you wanted (1 block, 2 blocks, etc.)

I want to know when, where, that picture was taken, and what color that T is. It looks like a "24 coupe. But it definitely is not black.
great photo! Thanks all.
Drive carefully, and enjoy the holidays! W2

We had a Dairy Maid here in the late 50's through the late 70's that had an ice house much like the one in the picture, but was about half as big. They sold a lot of block ice, mostly to campers that were camping at Big Lake, the local State Park. When the bagged ice came in, that was the end of that. Dave

John Lemon, see what I mean about painting T's different colors? Whatever the owner wanted was done. Dave

My dad had an ice machine just like that one. It made ice in blocks and cubes.

Every man had a wife and the ice man had his pic.

Norman and Dave mentioned signs to put in a front window telling the ice man how much ice to bring in, here are a couple examples.

The HAMB site is separate from the FordBarn. You need to register to use it.
