This video features Edey King daughter of Earl E. King Sr, aka the “iceman”, Deanwood’s first ice ice delivery man. Edey is still a resident of the Deanwood community and was outside doing chores as our walking tour passed her home on the way to see Deanwood’s first ice machine. She gladly took time out of her afternoon to tell us how this important relic to the community worked during the days when her father owned and operated it. Kia Chatman of the Deanwood History Committee is also featured in the video and was our tour guide.
Sign up for the next tour October 13, 11am. Detail are below.
