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.
