Up the ramp, across the platform and into the back of the waiting truck (not visible). The truck with the plow in the background pulls a cable which is attached to a device that slides 5 blocks at a time up the ramp via a pulley system.

Chain secured and another load ready to head for one of the ice houses. Once they are full, the ice will be covered with sawdust and it will keep nicely all summer.

interesting that trucks only haul 1 layer at a time - we used to load horse-drawn hayracks with 1 layer to skid ice off the river - on the level they could have dragged lots more but any more and the ponies worked too hard pulling the sled up the bank. think that stuff ain't heavy? plunk one on yer foot! or lose your footing, flop down and have a chunk pirouette across ya. woowee! :)
