Coolerator from Cape Pond Ice

An interesting ad from the 1937-38 Gloucester City Directory showcases the “Coolerator” from Cape Pond Ice and I love the selling point that “only ice is trouble free”! Perhaps some of our followers remember these ancestors to the current high tech refrigerators? This one makes ice cubes too. Anyhow, the ad makes me feel cooler just looking at it so I thought I’d share it.

One thought on “Coolerator from Cape Pond Ice

  1. My grandmother, who lived at the top of Commonwealth Ave., still had one of those “ice boxes” in the late 1940s. I can remember the man coming to her house to deliver the block of ice that fit into it. He wore a big rubber apron and carried the block of ice over his shoulder with a huge pair of tongs.
