This July, we’re all screaming for ice cream! Enjoyed by children and adults alike, ice cream is an iconic American summer treat. So much so, that in 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month, and the third Sunday of July as National Ice Cream Day.

In honor of this sweet holiday, this week’s throwback Thursday features a young boy eating ice cream from an Austin, TX, ice cream van on July 20, 1961.

Take a break from the summer heat and celebrate National Ice Cream Month with a visit to one of America’s coolest ice cream shops. And don’t forget to check back every week this month for our Vintage Summer Throwback Thursdays!
