CAMP MINSI ICE HARVEST | 1921

This 15-minute amateur film, silent and black and white, shows the ice harvesting process at Camp Minsi, circa 1921, on Stillwater Lake. This lake, like quite a few others in the township, was man-made to produce ice, one of the most important exports in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. (Film courtesy Prelinger Archives)
