Title: Ice Harvesting Crew
Author: Niebergall, Ernst
Description: As early as 1852, crews like this one began harvesting ice on Sandusky Bay. Large scale ice harvesting was so successful that E. E. Upp of Sandusky, Ohio, built a 10,000-ton capacity icehouse in 1868. Twenty dealers were doing business on Sandusky Bay by 1886, in addition to local owners of fisheries, breweries, and hotels, who harvested their own ice.
