ice cutting machine 

I have enclosed an interesting photo of an early ice cutting machine. It has a 4-cylinder engine that powered the unit. I have never seen one like it. It does not have a valve cover on the engine.

It appears to have a cross-flow cylinder head, which was somewhat uncommon in early multi-cylinder engines. Can any readers identify it?
