The Libby Ice Wagon with E. Perley Libby to the right and Ralph Johnson on the left. The pond provided ice for a small family business for two generations. The business was started about 1880 by his father Asbury and his brother William Henry. Mr. Libby got his ice from the small pond behind his house called "Perley's Pond". It was also a neighborhood skating spot. This pond is located on the Scarborough/South Portland line a short distance from Route 1.
