Ice delivery to downtown offices in Tokyo some 30+ years ago.
It's safe to say that offices that need ice for any reason- now have refrigerators that make it .
Japan got started late on a great many things.

Actually, I know a few ice dealers! Nowadays, they sell mostly to the fishing industry and special ice for ice carvings.

Thanks for a modern insight, Ryan.
As you know, delivering bulk ice to the fishing industry is much different than delivering ice to offices or homes that have no ice-making machines.
Long ago when I was a child in Los Angeles, we had home ice delivery. My brother and I would wait for bits to fall on the street as the man sawed chunks off for our house. We'd use the 10-second rule and snap them off the street, brush them off, and suck on them until the ice was gone.
A couple years later we got a refrigerator to replace our icebox.
A generation later, Japan was still dealing with iceboxes.
Because of their lightning recovery from the devastation they experienced during WWII, it's easy to forget that 50 years ago, Japan lagged far behind the US and Europe kin many ways.
The ice delivery thing is but a small example.

Charlie I love your photo's and look at them quite often. They bring back so many memories of my travels at similar time frames to when you captured these simple wonderful images. Thanks so much for the memories particularly of Asia where I lived for years, means a lot to me.

You think you know a guy! I had no idea you grew up in LA, Charlie.
As an aging, desk jockey, I love the idea of pedaling this ice around for delivery.
Wonderful shot.

Thanks a lot, Dave.
M posts are often plain and distant from most expectations (and always much older and out-of-date), so I realize there will be fewer who appreciate my modest efforts. So be it.
But that means I REALLY appreciate it when people such as yourself can enjoy and relate to them.
