Making Ice Cream
Today's picture was taken in 1940, and it shows some children making home made ice cream. How many of you remember making ice cream in a bucket like this? I sure do and can tell you it makes the best ice cream. Now, a couple of things about the picture. When we used a bucket like this we filled it to the top with ice, and in this picture I see no ice showing. Also, on ours to keep it from tipping over as you turned the crank, you had to have another kid sit on the top of the bucket for weight. So, I suspect in this picture perhaps they are getting ready to make ice cream but are not really doing it yet.
