Icehouses by Tim Buxbaum

Book Description

In the days before refrigeration, the very wealthy would use specially designed icehouses to store food from one season to the next. This book examines the design and development of icehouses, using many illustrations to explain how they worked and how they improved as scientific knowledge increased. With a detailed description of the different uses of icehouses, as well as examples of some of the most elaborately decorative structures, this book provides a rare insight into an intriguing subject.
