I scream, you scream? 1867.

Amazement at the Wai Hau.—On the evening of this past Saturday, between the hours of 7 and 10, Horne [Horn] opened up his sweets shop to welcome those who wanted ice cream. We hear that because of the great number of people interested, all the ice cream was gone that evening and those that came after were given something that was not actually ice cream, but something similar.

[Here’s an advertisement for this shop much later in Thrum’s Annual for 1886, but we see that the establishment was opened in 1863!]
