Featured here are two frozen food related trade catalogs—one showing frozen food and the other showing storage cabinets for frozen food.
“Doors roll silently with a light touch . . . ” That’s a description from the Weber Showcase & Fixture Co. catalog entitled Roll A Door Cabinets for Frozen Foods and Ice Cream. These cabinets have horizontal frost-free doors which roll open. The rolling doors help keep the temperature constant in the cabinet.
The next catalog shows frozen turkey products. The catalog is entitled Empire Frozen Turkey Products, by Empire Kosher Poultry, Inc., located in Mifflintown, PA.
Both of these trade catalogs are located in the Trade Literature Collection at the National Museum of American History Library. Also located in the collection are many more refrigeration and freezer related catalogs from other companies.—Alexia MacClain, photos by Lu Rossignol
