Ice Cream Wars

14 06 2007

Today, Boing Boing did a little bit on the Ice Cream Patent Wars of the 1930s and linked to two archive.gov articles by Jefferson Moak entitled The Frozen Sucker War: Good Humor v. Popsicle (click here for links to part one and part two; it’s a wonderful article).  It’s got some neat-o pictures in it, but maybe none are as cool as the vintage photo of the Good Humor truck:

Very cool!  You can almost hear the bells.  What I really like about the piece is that it adds historical depth to the Good Humor story I touched upon in my article about ice cream truck music.
