The Mountain Ice Company, circa 1895. This huge operation employed large numbers who cut ice blocks on the Lake in the winter, storing them in a mammoth wooden insulated storage building, and shipping the ice out by rail to fill the iceboxes of city dwellers in warm weather. The Ice house was located off Yellow Barn Ave, near the Silver Springs section of Landing and was owned by Theodore King. The RR tracks were a spur off the Lackawanna Line at Landing and serviced the Ice House as well as the Atlas Powder (Explosives) Co.
