Fifty-two years ago the late Christopher Mucker-mann started in the ice and fuel business with an equipment of two wagons and the honest determination to give the people the Right Service and the Right Quality at the Right Price. To-day all six sons of this pioneer St. Louisan are connected with the Polar Wave Ice and Fuel Company.

The policy of giving the Right Service and the Right Quality at the Right Price, handed down from father to sons, is the solid foundation of the business to-day, because without those enduring principles no permanent success is possible. Following the requirements of the people moving with them, expanding as the city grew larger, and keeping uppermost the big idea of giving the Right Service and the Right Quality at the Right Price has placed a Polar Wave Branch convenient to every neighborhood and wagons with courteous drivers everywhere.
