Colorado Railroad Ice Houses

Ice houses were a new concept when the country's railroads finnally began to use them to replenish the ice necessary to keep their customers' perishable item from spoiling in transit. Railroads were reluctant users of refrigerated cars in the first place, but large shippers such as meat packers, breweries, and produce suppliers demanded they use this method to ship perishable goods. In Colorado Railroad Ice Houses the author uses photographs, drawings and maps to skillfully explore this unique project.
