- Item Type:
- This photograph shows the ice house belonging to the old Scotland creamery, with Neil O'Reilly as a child standing in front. This ice house stored all of the ice needed for the creamery's operations; the ice came from Lower Oakland pond during the winter, where blocks as thick as eighteen inches were cut with special saws. The ice was stored beneath sawdust, which kept it insulated and cold even during the summer.
