Paper addict that I am, I had never seen a book of coupons for ice coupons until I got this one. My first guess at this was WRONG, so here's an amended listing. Clue #1 was the six digit phone number which was common for urban areas from the 20's to the 50's. The second clue I missed altogether and that was the picture of the ice box on the back which dates it to the 20's or 30's! It has nothing to do with rationing and WWII. Interestingly enough, the ServICE Delivery Company of Akron, Ohio is still in the ice business. This book of coupons is unused -- no names or writing and no coupons missing. The total value of the book is 5000 pounds of ice. The tickets are color coded to show the amount requested-- pink is 200 lbs, green is 100, yellow is 50, and gold is 25 lbs. The book measures 2-1/2"x5" and has four coupons per page. Nice Akron collectible. I also have one for the Irvington Ice and Coal Company of Indianapolis.
