We lived mostly wo AC when I was growing up... we had an evaporative cooling unit near the dining room... worked . . if you sat directly in front of it and no more than 3' away !!
We drank lots of iced drinks, and sometimes ice cream to cool off.
Talk about "NO AC!" , on our honeymoon we drove into Las Vegas on July 20th in my wife's car with no AC. It had gone out months before and I was moving my new wife from Amarillo, TX to San Francisco, CA (where you don't need one)... so we decided to tough it... we didn't know it was going to be 117 F when we got there. We must have chomped a 10 lb bag of ice between the Grand Canyon and LV, NV. Once in LV, the hotel was plenty cool ! But getting there was a hot ordeal !! You might say we really had the "hots" on our Honeymoon !!
My parental unit and I drove from Miami to Los Angeles, taking the southern route through AL, MI, LA, TX, NM, AZ, and through the desert into Los Angeles. That was the summer of 1967--interesting for a whole bunch of reasons, not least of which were the machine-gun-toting National Guardsmen on every street corner of Biloxi. But we had no air conditioning. And we survived quite well.
