Cutting Ice at Community Beach
Mimie Pearse Cianciulli loaned me these family pictures many years ago and I believe I posted them in the Windham Independent previously. They are very interesting in that they show the shore and cottages along First Street near Community Beach sometime between 1929 and 1933. The people in the photograph were members of the Pearse and Perry families. They were cutting ice to put in the ice house to use for refrigeration the following summer. It seems as much fun as work!
