Cool Retro Image of the Week
Hamilton Skotch Ice
Here at Retroplanet.com we are surrounded by all things retro. Not only the things we sell but original items and collections that decorate our offices. We thought it might be interesting each week to bring you a photo and information of an interesting, and maybe unusual, retro item we have kicking around. Please note these items are not for sale.
This is a package of reusable picnic cooler cans called Skotch Ice. They were sold along with Hamilton Skotch picnic coolers and were filled with a freezable material to keep food and drinks cool. Skotch Ice was a neater way to cool foods without having to worry about the mess made by melting ice. This set is from the 1950s, and each can measures approximately 4 inches tall. The packaging is still in excellent condition.
