MEDINA – In the lower left corner of this picture we note, “Ideal Restaurant, Medina NY.”

The Niagara-Orleans directory of 1930 lists this as located at 112 East Center St., which would have been the Cooper Block.

The two women in white dresses are probably waitresses while the man in a white shirt is the cook. The tables are set with white linen tablecloths and napkins.

Notice the wild wall paper and exposed heat duct to another floor.
