    Cool Iceworks

    What an "iceworks" is?

    I've found this word in a list of locations that were used for an old movie shooting. The paragraph where found says: "he rented an old chateau which also served as lodging during the shoot for the 35 cast members and technicians, he rented an old watermill, an abandoned iceworks, and a presbytery..."

    In the movie there are some sequences taking place inside a ruined factory, but it's hard to guess what activity this factory was build for. Might "iceworks" be, to say something, a kind of ice factory? Taking into account we are talking about a movie from the last twenties.

    Thanks a lot

    Yes, it's probably an ice factory.
