Steam Made Ice Cream
In the early 1900's steam manufactured Ice Cream was widely advertised. Instead of being handcranked the crank was replaced by a pulley and that was hooked to a steam engine and turned. Those Ice Cream Plants next to a rail line would also advertise they would ship anywhere by train.
You tube has a number of videos showing ice cream made by steam but I found few still photographs of the process . http://wn.com/steam_powered_ice_cream_maker
In some cases gasoline engines were used to churn the ice cream
as electric lines and improved electric motors became available steam engines would be replaced
