Back of the Ice House

backofcherokeeice

This is a rear view of the building on Netherland Inn Road that once was Cherokee Ice House.  It’s been heavily remodeled in the front, but they left this mostly alone.  On the left was the ice room.  Underneath, through those two openings, were the compressors and brine circulaters.
Ice, for a time, was the intermediate technology, like the cassette tape, in a way.  It did the job, but not real well.  Then, ice was heavy and always messily changing to liquid water…cassettes didn’t have those problems.  They were pretty crappy, though.
