    These businesses were scattered all around the Metro area years ago. There was even one in Kirkwood, located near the MOP RR station. It’s name, the Kirkwood Ice & Fuel Co., has been carried forward by a good local bar.

    My ex’s family business was the same in Jennings many decades ago – Fix Ice & Fuel. Having seen the writing on the wall after WWII, it was changed into a cement company, Fix Mix, and survived for decades; it poured much of the foundations in the burgeoning North County subdivisions for years after the War.

    Part of our ever changing landscape. What once was a daily ritual is now defunct.
