‘Girls deliver ice. Heavy work that formerly belonged to men only is being done by girls. The ice girls are delivering ice on a route and their work requires brawn as well as the partriotic ambition to help.
Author International Film Service, Photographer (NARA record: 544230)
Record creator War Department. (1789 – 09/18/1947)
Date 16 September 1918’

September 1918 was in the middle of the 1918 Flu Pandemic that killed 1 to 3 percent of the world’s population.

Here’s a handwritten 1918 recipe for cake, which I hope is something those girls got to eat after their workday!

Love is like a snowmobile racing across the tundra and then suddenly it flips over, pinning you underneath. At night, the ice weasels come. – Matt Groening
