Ice Cream Through the Ages/1885: Mrs. Marshall's "Cheap" Ice Cream (and Cones Too)  Let's jump ahead to Victorian England and take a look into the life of Mrs. Agnes B. Marshall, a prominent ice cream monger who did a lot to bring ice cream to the masses. Mrs. Marshall patented her own ice cream maker, and tinkered with using liquid nitrogen to make ice cream. Her Book of Ices includes a recipe for "Cornets with Cream," which may be the first publication of the ice cream cone.

London Canal Museum The Museum gives an extraordinary insight into Victorian London when the canals were first created and you and you can take a look inside a narrow boat, learn about the cargoes carried on the boats and the horses that pulled them. The museum also has a genuine Victorian ice well where imported Norwegian Ice was stored after arrival before being sold to wealthy Londoners and even an early Ice-cream Maker!

Among London’s many, many weird and wonderful museums, the London Canal Museum near Primrose Hill surely stands out as one of the most niche attractions in the capital. Housed in a former Victorian ice-warehouse built for famous ice-cream maker Carlo Gatti, it was once the drop-off spot for canal boats bringing cargoes of ice from Norway to London in the 1800s.
