MEDINA – The view in this post card shows thousands of barrels of apples stacked up along the Erie Canal dock in Medina.

The card was published by the Bickle Brothers, circa 1908. This was before the canal was enlarged here in 1911-13. Note the canal boat which is already loaded with apple barrels.
