Title: Scraping the Ice Field
Author: Niebergall, Ernst
Description: Harvesting quality ice depended on selecting the perfect field. Great care was taken to locate areas of smooth, solid ice containing little snow or slush. Men used wooden ice scrapers pulled by teams to remove snow before marking the ice. Winter storms often forced ice harvesters to scrape the ice field as many as six to eight times.
