Lemonade with lots of ice

1930s Carltonware Jug

When the car needs washing or the lawn needs mowing, what is it that keeps us going to the end of the job? The satisfaction of a job well done? The restoration of order and peace? Or maybe a jug full of home made lemonade with lots of ice to make it really cold?

This jug is from the 1930’s when it would equally well have furnished refreshment after a game of tennis or at the end of a bridge party on the verandah. These days you will find it equally happy to dispense a cold drink of lemon, lime and bitters.
