Summertime lemon ice recipe

Summertime lemon ice recipe
Lemon ice

This recipe came to me via a collection of handwritten recipes from the 1950s. It does seem like a simple enough recipe and it seems very appropriate for something cool to have for dessert during the hot summer months. So, before I lose this recipe and its companion recipe orange ice here it is.
