Cape Pond Ice
Ordering ice from the factory used to be the only way to get a reliable stock of the cold stuff in one's home, outside of gravely insulting the sun. Founded in 1848, Cape Pond Ice dates back to that bygone era. Though today it produces festive ice sculptures, cinematic special effects, and uncommon liquor conveyances, the company also keeps true to its arctic roots by stocking block, bulk, and bagged ice. And Cape Pond Ice continues to cool its longest-running clients as well: Gloucester's fisherman, whose reliance on their services was outlined in Sebastian Junger's The Perfect Storm.
