Video Details      

Circular panorama of housing the ice

The camera photographed an area of industrial activity. Against a hill approximately one hundred feet in height, ten escalatorlike conveyors have been constructed. The film indicates that the system was designed to lift ice that had been cut from a lake to the top of a hill where it was either stored or shipped. The camera pans from the mechanized area to the right 150 degrees to show the total operation.
