Great pic Jay! Cool little truck. Imagine how challenging it would've been keeping ice cream from getting too soft, let alone melting, with no doubt nothing more than ice boxes in that truck on an 80 degree day. Ice cream really needs to be slightly below zero to stay firm.

Serving of salmonella anyone? :-)

Mark, thanks for that link. Never thought about dry ice. We used to use it in our coolers when we would go cruising in our sailboat for days at a time years ago. Kinda sounds like it wasn't really around commercially until around 1925 from what I've read in wikipedia. I can't tell what year the truck is in Jay's pic. Nice ice cream truck you have Steve!

Doubt if anyone wants this post to continue much more but to answer the question "how did they keep the ice cream refrigerated" Answer; Ice and salt. With the ice cream in its container, the container with a lid on it was placed in a larger container and ice and salt was packed in between the two. Salt brings the temperature of ice down to a colder temp.
