Inscription.  In 1909, the St. Charles Coal & Ice Company made and delivered "artificial ice" for twenty-five to forty cents per hundredweight. If the customer "desired heat instead of cold," they delivered coal for three dollars a ton. Residents of St. Charles burned 60,000 tons of coal that year. St. Charles Coal & Ice was located in St. Charles over its lifetime.
