The ice cream, bakery, and candy store of my dreams! Jens Confectionary Shop in Milwaukee, shown here in 1916, sold ice cream for a nickel and had jars of fruits and nuts for sundae toppings. The ice cream was Luick, which was once one of the nation’s largest manufacturers of ice cream. President Grover Cleveland is said to have served Luick at a White House state dinner so it must have been delicious stuff. The Luick Ice Cream factory was located in Yankee Hill in downtown Milwaukee.
