Westport Historical Society Mystery Item #1

For the next year, the Westport Historical Society is presenting “The History of Westport in 100 Objects.”

The exhibit changes every 2 weeks. Each time, there’s a new “mystery” item. The winner — chosen from all correct guesses — gets an item from the gift shop.

The first object was this:

If you guessed “ice shaver” — which I did not — you might have won.

It looks a bit different than today’s ice shavers. But that’s why it’s at the Westport Historical Society, not your kitchen.

    Cool, but I prefer my Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine.

    Brought back great memories of growing up in Brookltn with the ice man who came every day of the summer with shaved ice and assorted syrups for the top.  His gizmo was a square silver ice shaver though! Karen Como
