Synopsis:

In the days before refrigeration, icehouses were designed to store ice in bulk for summertime use. This book examines icehouses in Britain, where they were built in increasing numbers from the early seventeenth century, initially to provide chilled refreshment for the wealthy. By the mid nineteenth century most country estates would have had one. Their design improved as scientific knowledge increased and, although the majority of icehouses remained plain, some exuberant structures were built. Commercial icehouses were erected to serve confectioners, grocers and the fishing industry, for which huge quantities of ice were imported from North America and Norway. A study of both the use and architecture of icehouses, this book sheds light on these fascinating buildings.

This is a new, revised and extended version of the book using new research on icehouses from country houses, and including more information on some of the commercial icehouses, for example those used to preserve fish in great warehouses in Scottish fishing centres.

About the Author: Tim Buxbaum is a chartered architect in private practice in Suffolk. This book stems from his interest in garden architecture, which is reflected in his other publications, Scottish Garden Buildings, From Food to Folly, and, for Shire Publications, Scottish Doocots and Pargeting.

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Often hidden away or incorporated into other architectural features, icehouses are a largely forgotten part of our heritage. As winters warmed through the nineteenth century, and supplies of natural ice declined, the development of artificial refrigeration made redundant these curious buildings - often status symbols in themselves - which had been designed to store winter snow and ice into the summer. Icehouses allowed perishables to be preserved, chilled delicacies to be enjoyed, and fevers to be relieved - and on a commercial scale they fed an international trade that carried snow from mountain peaks and ice from frozen lakes to supply the needs of industry, markets and householders. In this illustrated introduction, Tim Buxbaum explains how icehouses developed; how, when and where they were built; and how they operated, including a chapter on icehouses from around the world.
