Ice can be the exquisitely sculpted centerpiece of a celebration or a forbidding block of funereal stasis. Ice holds the moment suspended in eternity, and ice is what slips away. The last status symbol of the space-age self-made man.
Ice is quite old. The Romans already used it to chill drinks. It was hugely expensive and remained so until mass production of ice became industrially possible. Ice was gathered in wintertime and stored in insulated cellars underground or in insulated houses build for the purpose. It was a laborious job to cut the ice and transport it to the cellars. Only the very rich could afford this kind of luxury.
During Victorian times the price of ice dropped to affordable levels because industrialization made that possible. Instead of cutting the ice at a local pond in England, it became possible to cut the ice mechanically in Canada and the USA and transport it by steamer to England and other countries.
