Description

An icehouse located at 300 Bush Boulevard in Sanford, Florida, during the 1920s or 1930s. John Wesley Woods (1886-1966), presumably the owner of the icehouse pictured, is seen standing on the driver's side of the truck parked in front of the icehouse.. The two men standing on the porch, from left to right, are Earl Partain and Fred Page. According to an article published in The Sanford Herald, Woods, was instrumental in the formation of the Sanford Zoo, as he contributed a raccoon, a opossum, a grey squirrel, at least one fox, a porcupine, a skunk, and an alligator. This particular photograph was donated to the Museum of Seminole County History by C. D Partain, the grandson of both Woods and Partain. The back of the photograph also identifies Page as Nell's husband, but it is unclear as to who Nell is.
