Which of the following was a large scale industry in the 19th century?

Ice harvesting
Snow cleaning
Smoke production
Soil magnetization
In the United States, the first cargo of ice was sent from New York City to Charles­ton in 1799, and by the first half of the 19th century, ice har­vest­ing had become big busi­ness. Ice was imported into England from Norway, Trieste sent it to Egypt, and Switzer­land to France. Ice pro­duc­tion is still a large business though it is no more har­vest­ed from lakes. In 2002, there were 426 com­mer­cial ice-­mak­ing com­pa­nies in the United States.
