Biographical/Historical Notes
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.
