From the point on the hammers in the hanging tool box perhaps they are used to break up any large chunks of ice.

Looks to me more like a workman's toolbox that has been hung by a convenient nail to keep it from being under foot.

This is link to an undated photo from the Los Angeles Public Library digital archives:
