MEDINA – In this post card by W.C. Eaton we see the Clark Allis & Son Cold Storage east of Medina. This card is post marked March 24, 1913.

This storage was located at the railroad crossing on the Allis Road, which is a dead-end road off Route 31. In our photo looking northeast, we see a box car on a siding.
