Boiler technology circa 1890’s early 1900’s

_Bohlen Huse boiler tubes

This picture was taken at the Bohlen-Huse Ice Company following the great flood of April 1913 which inundated the companies facilities.  This picture along with a number of others was taken to support a flood damage claim.  The Bohlen-Huse Ice company was founded in 1850 and was purchased by James Lee Jr. around 1884.  The tall rectangular container to the left of the boiler tubes is an ice mold.  The series of pictures taken to support the flood claim were in the possession of my second cousin Rowena Lee daughter of Capt. G Peters Lee.  A Memphis couple who looked after Rowena inherited her collection of family papers, graciously permitted me to copy these pictures along with other documents.
