The first ice boxes were made by carpenters in the 1840s, designed to take advantage of something new in American life: the regular household delivery of large blocks of ice that could be obtained daily in large cities and even small ones. But while the first even remotely successful electric household refrigerator didn’t debut until 1915, inventors were working on them at least a decade earlier because of the failings of the ice box as described above.

Blocks of ice were stored in the top of the icebox so cold air would circulated downwards to keep the food cool.
