Inscription.  In the 1830s, Frederick Tudor became known as Boston's Ice King. Since around 1805, he had ice cut from local ponds and shipped to far away places as Calcutta, Rio de Janeiro, the West Indies and the Far East. As his business grew, he did his most prosperous trading from Tudor Wharves (now known as Hoosac Pier).

Did you know? Tudor packed Baldwin apples with his ice, shipped both to distant ports, and made a profit on each cargo.
