Looks like a good place for the guy that everyone on the crew hates (like the boss) to "accidentally" fall off at the highest point.

Did you notice at the top right corner of the picture how the cables curve up toward the surface? This picture is taken near the bottom of the ride after the cables curve out more horizontally than the upper part of the ride. This picture is after the ride has slowed down. You know after the screaming has stopped!

While I can't exactly point to the exact item the girls are wearing etc, as a whole it looks staged to me. Shoes too shiny I think and fold creases in a new pair of store bought overalls etc. However I dont think that because this pic looks staged it didn't happen that women carried ice chunks of that size. I do feel that they could represent other women that actually did that work.
My grand parents had a frozen food locker at the Ice Plant in town 8 miles away. I remember in 1958 my grandmother swinging a huge chunk of ice over her shoulder with tongs when she picked it up. She loaded it up in the pickup and drove home to cook for tomorrows 30+ men in the thrashing crew. I think I will go out this spring and look around to see if I can find one of her set's of tongs around the estate.
I think I mentioned before that my grandmother had been a novice Nun before being called home to take care of her mother and twin sisters. Women were tougher then. ....... ESPECIALLY........ the NUNS!

They appear to me to be younger young ladies quite possibly in their late teens and most probably the daughters of the ice-man. Possibly posing for the photo to be in an add for his ice business. If this were the case it could explain a few things their lack of muscular development in their arms the apparent newness of clothes and or shoes. Also note both have many similarities in their facial features the height difference could be explained as a couple years between their ages.
Never try to tell me it can't be done
