The Alaskan Icebox

Does anyone remember these days? The Alaskan icebox was first manufactured in 1892 when 4,000 were shipped in 42 train cars. Soon after that, ice plants became a common denominator in Atlanta and ice wagons on the street were seen delivering chunks of ice to homes. This picture is from The Atlanta Journal edition of the 1920's.  These sort of minor details made up the recent life-styles of our families.
