TBT: Ice Cream

As you very well know, it’s National Ice Cream Month!

I scream. You scream. We all scream for ice cream. But time and time again, the screaming is ineffective. Most times, you simply must go to the store to buy some. 

Remember, jocohistory.org is the place to time travel through local history. Be sure to follow our hashtag on Twitter!

Happy Throwback Thursday! Some call it the best day of the week.
