Default Ammonia and Ice Rinks

I searched online and debunked my own myth.

This book
from 1895 discusses man-made ice rinks in England and France and mentions that brine is piped through the floor, not the ammonia.

Interesting that they use the room below the ice rink for cold storage. Very efficient, those Victorian Engineers!
