Package icing

On our recent fishing trip we spent a week in NW Ontario and a few days in Northern Minn. Met a guy in Northern Minn. that fished the same NW Ontario lake back in the early 50s. He told me that they shipped their fish home to SE Iowa by train. They were notified when the fish arrived. The fish were packed in a wooden crate lined with heavy paper. The crate was filled with chipped ice and the fish were as fresh as when caught. Said it took ten days to get the fish...Interesting...
