ere.] West Medford, May 25, 1901. The street railway track in Boston Ave. was laid this week. The above was visible through the glass of the bottle, attracting the finder's attention to the following enclosure: This house (the two-story 32 ft. portion) was the L, or wing of the tavern belonging to the Middlesex canal, and formerly stood between the present Arlington and Tontine streets and fronting on the present Boston avenue. The writer first made its acquaintance in May, 1870, when he made extensive repairs upon it; the first work he did in Medford. At that time there were but fifteen houses on this side the railroad, between High street and the river, and but two beyond the river on the slope of the hill. The course of the canal was plainly visible, and the ruins of the aqueduct over the river still remained, though the gates and timber of the lock had been removed. The old tavern was removed from its former location in May, 1889, to its present sites. T
