Default neighbor who has lived here all his life tells me that prior to a/c they use to put a block of ice in front of a fan at the front/read door of their shotgun house and let the cool air blow thru the house

I grew up in the Hudson Valley without a/c in our home and didn't purchase a car with a/c until I moved to California in the 80's
