Ice Harvest

Back in the Olden Days - no refrigeration!! You bought ice, and kept things cool with and 'ice box'. How did you get the ice? When your grand parents were kids, you had to harvest it from a lake, or buy it from someone that did.

Harvesting Ice - Traditional: (You might want to turn down the sound. They sing 'Winter Wonderland' as background, which has got to be one of the most obnoxious songs ever written.)

Why would anyone bother harvesting ice today?

Hi Andrew,

Hard to know. Other than to say - 'Hey, we did this!' I can't think of a practical application.
