First Fridge

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary
THE FIRST KNOWN COLD STORAGE WAS IN 1877.
(Better Known As A Root Cellar)
Even well into the early to mid 1900's
Farm and City Homes Alike Had Dug Outs Preferably
In The Shade Or Facing North
Where Food Was Stored In Dirt and Sand
FOR GENERAL PURPOSE or for THE LONG WINTERS AHEAD.

Many Fresh Foods and Root Foods Would Stay Good For Months and Months!

MAYBE THESE KIND FOLKS WILL INVITE US FOR
DINNER AFTER OUR LONG PADDLE BOAT RIDE?
