These are authentic antique ice coupon books. These were used in the situations where the people that did not have refrigeration (90 per cent or more) would have ice delivered to their home and put it in their ice box to keep food from spoilling. They would then pay for the ice by tearing out however many coupons were needed and give them to the delivery driver. We've come a long way since the 1920's. Since the hydro bills keep escallating maybe we should go back to that type of operation. NOT!

Trivia: It takes a shark about a week to grow a new set of teeth. That's even faster than getting dentures made nowadays.

Did you know? A new planet, twice the size of jupitor, has been discovered, and unlike any other planet, it travels counterclockwise around its star. The planet, spotted 1,000 light years away in the constellation of Scorpios, has been named WASP-17 because it is the 17th to be recorded outside the Solar System by the Wide Area Search for Planets run by U.K. universities.
