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!
