More of Carl’s

It’s summer; it’s hot, raining, humid, sunny, cloudy — basically everything in the Lake Champlain Valley. We even had an earthquake here (and it’s all the radio hosts can talk about). I digress. Anyway, even with the crazy weather patterns passing over the lake, it is undeniably summer in Vermont. Traveling for work on country roads, I often pass farm stands and ice cream stands and it makes me want ice cream, of course. So, I thought I’d share some more photos of the famous Carl’s Ice Cream in Fredericksburg, VA (which was featured for Preservation Photos #37).  After all, what is more summery than a roadside ice cream stand on a hot day? Enjoy!

Quite the popular spot on Princess Anne Street in Fredericksburg.

Front elevation -- note the flamingos and friends.

I have a compulsive urge to photograph roadside stands.

Choose your ice cream!

The ice cream cone glows neon at night.

Ice cream machines!

Or, have a milkshake.
