The Ice House Company, whose shop stood on Queen's Road Central, at the junction with Battery Path and Ice House Street, did not manufacture ice. The ice was harvested from iceburgs by The American Company and shipped to Hong Kong (source: Hong Kong - A Rare Photographic Record of the 1860s by Arthur Hacker).
