Allison King, a masters student at the University of Texas at Austin, has created a great online history of the Hansen's Sno-Bliz iconic snowball stand.

Created with the help and cooperation of Ashley Hansen, granddaughter of the late founders Ernest and Mary Hansen, the Web site is a living multimedia document and a rich piece of nostalgia. There's a Flickr site for the Hansen family photos (check out the shots of Mrs. Hansen with Willard Scott on The Today Show), a blog, and an online multimedia exhibit.

Allison has even set up a YouTube page with some great footage -- check out this home movie taken at Hansen's in 1991:
