John Krampf & Son, Coal and Ice

This is a photo of my Grandfather (Grandpa Krampf) and Great Grandfather. They delivered ice and coal to people's homes. The ice was put into an ice box, because people did not have refrigerators in their homes. The photo was taken in St. Louis, Missouri, around 1912. According to my research, at this time, they were using a mechanical freezer and also cutting and storing natural ice.
