Vintage Ice Cream Photographs

Over the weekend, I had some seriously delicious coconut ice cream, and I have not been able to stop thinking about it since! Needless to say, I’ve got ice cream on my mind, so I thought it was a good time to post some vintage ice cream photos that I’ve collected over the years. I love old photographs, almost as much as I love ice cream, and with summer winding down, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to share them with you! Enjoy (and go get some ice cream)!! –Erin

 p.s. I spend a great deal of time researching the original sources/photographers of these photos because I think it’s important to give credit to the creator of the image. Nothing makes me more batty than all these websites out there that post images and give absolutely no credit information. People of the internet: someone took that picture, you should at least *try* to find out who did. Okay, that is my rant for the day. Enjoy the photos! :-)
