MEDINA – The post card shown here was mailed on Nov. 27, 1905. It depicts the Oak Orchard Creek flowing under the old Erie Canal Aqueduct in Medina.

This is looking north down the creek where just on the other side of the aqueduct it tumbles over the Medina Falls. Note the depth of the canal over the arch.
