    I lived next door and it was always a treat to have snow in the Summer when we were kids. We would hop the fence and ask Mr. Smith if we could have some of the ice shavings. We would scoop it right off the ground!!! Bruce – it was a good neighborhood!

    We would sit on the front steps in the Summer and watch all the cars stopping to buy ice. People would get out of their cars to talk if they knew you. And back then, everybody knew you!

    While I did not have the Smith Ice experience, I had the next best thing. My Dad worked a bit for Riverside Dairy as a milkman back in the early ’60s and he would bring us kids the snow and ice from his truck (as well as some chocolate milk)….. ah yes, the good old days.

    Back in the 60’s, remember my dad and I used to drive over from Salisbury Beach and pick up 10 or 12, 50 lbs bags of cubes twice a day during the summer……..then my mom and I we would repackage them into 10 lbs bags for sale at Shaheen’s package store…….
