[p. 71]

The forests of the South and of the Pacific slope, as well as the oaks of nearer states enter into the construction of the Tremont, while steam, compressed air, and the gas engine had much to do in shaping timbers and boring for tree-nails that in the old days, even of the building of the Pilgrim in ‘73, was laboriously done by hand. The place of the Tremont's building is not in Medford but in Somerville, and supposedly at or near where the Blessing of the Bay was built and launched in 1631, and till 1842 a part of Charlestown.

By annexation from other towns the original Medford has extended its borders and Wellington bridge connects and makes neighbors of those the river separated. Great possibilities of growth and improvement lie along the Mystic up-stream, that coming years should see realized. Under wise municipal administration and mutual cooperation of labor with capital this may be for the future historian to record.
