A later and finer reproduction of this map (17 1/2 x 18 1/2 inches), on fine white paper, shows the new boundary, made by the transfer to Maiden of a strip of Medford of about a fifth of a mile on Salem street. This was issued just as Medford became a city, as it shows no ward divisions.
Various maps prepared by the city engineers, showing the water and sewer systems, have been included in the printed city reports.
The latest we notice is that of Engineer Charnock, January I, 1916.
This shows the ward and precinct lines, and such streets in Maiden, Somerville and Arlington as cross or are near boundaries.
Judge Wait alluded to twenty-two plans of various localities in Medford that were recorded in Middlesex (South) Registry between 1827 and 1855. One of these (August, 1850) in Plan Book 5, p. 8, he styles very interesting.
It is called Land of Brooks, at West Medford.
See Register, Vol.
I, p. 126.. It shows the entire tract between High street, the B. & L. R. R.
