This picture was taken in 1940, and shows some boys making ice cream with an old time "crank" style ice cream makers. The ice cream was being made for a church social. The picture was taken near Yanceyville, Caswell County, North Carolina.
I can remember we had this type of ice cream maker when I was a boy. I don't see them much any more. Now, I have one of the new type, with a canister you put in the freezer. I think the old style ones like in this picture make better ice cream.
