Cutting and canaling ice

SUMMARY The camera shows what appears to be a frozen-over lake on which men are driving teams of horses pulling a device similar to a plow. The second camera position shows that the horses are being driven in a straight line across the ice, with the device chiseling a groove, called canaling, into the ice. This action precedes removal of the ice for storage so it can be used during the summer. NOTES Copyright: Thomas A. Edison, Inc.; 24Feb02; H14436.
