This building once housed the local ice plant. For those of you too young to understand, that’s the place that produced ice in communities in the days before electric refrigerators. Quincy Webb writes: As a boy growing up in Telfair I would drive a 1934 model Chevrolet to Lumber City every day during summer to pick up ice, [the Meat Co. was an ice plant back then] I was barely old enough to drive.

    Brian , as a boy growing up in Telfair I would drive a 1934 model Chevrolet to Lumber City every day during summer to pick up ice, [the Meat Co. was an ice plant back then] I was barely old enough to drive, a friend of mine owns the Meat Co. now, thanks for the memories!
