44 The Great Refrigerator in the Restaurant
As an adjunct to our kitchen the great refrigerator as shown’ in the illustration on the other side is a most interesting feature. Here great quantities of perishable food stuffs are carried in stock, and as we have fed as many as 12,500 people in a single day, the need for refrigerators of enormous capacity is apparent. This picture gives you but a glimpse of a portion of the refrigerator and you will notice that there is a very large supply of meats, milk, eggs, poultry, watermelons, etc., in stock in this section of the refrigerator We buy our meats in enormous quantities and age them in our own refrigerator. We have an artificial ice plant and consume in this refrigerator and in the dining room service more than a ton of ice per day. All the water we use on the premises for cooking, drinking and ice making 1S from our own artesian well and is filtered before using.
