Ice

Ice-WEB

I was so excited when I found this postcard; such a nice clear image of ice cutting and the ice houses, with a conveyer carrying the cakes of ice up to a loft. But mostly, since the card was in England, I wanted to know who mailed it across the Atlantic from Skaneateles. And it arrived, and it had never been mailed; someone sent it in an envelope, probably along with a letter. Next time.

This just in: The Skaneateles Historical Society notes, “Turn of the century is the label on ours. The man’s name is Wesley J. Hares.” Thank you, Laurie Winship!

  2. That is my great grandfather! Found this postcard in my grandmother’s things after she died. He had 13 children in Auburn and there are still many in the area. We have a family Reunion every year.
