Citizens recall hot summer days

The heat wave has abated a bit, but not without invoking memories of many older citizens.

Very few owned refrigerators in the 1940s. When they did come onto the market, the price was too high for many families.

Many in the borough still remember Gusty Hobel, who operated an open truck delivering blocks of ice. Gusty chipped the frozen blocks of water with an ice pick and used iron hooks with a handle to make the delivery. Children loved the shavings of ice left behind.
