Possible Massachusetts footage shows a building sign "Bushway-Whiting Ice Cream" and a New York car license plate dated 1938.
Dennis and Clare Sullivan, of Brooklin, Maine, bought this film at an estate auction for the Bushway family in the 1970s. J. Howard Bushway (1885-1980) lived in West Newton, Mass., and ran the Bushway Ice Cream Company in Somerville, Mass., started by his father in 1881. In 1929 the company merged to become Bushway-Whiting.
