Above: "Filling the Ice House," an oil painting by Harry Gottlieb (1895-1992), created while he participated in the New Deal's Public Works of Art Project, ca. 1933-1934. Before refrigeration became widely available, many homes and businesses relied on ice delivery. Image courtesy of the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
